HOUSTON, TX - It's June 17, National Eat Your Vegetables Day, a reminder that a healthy lifestyle requires eating lots of vitamins A, B, K, provitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, phytochemicals, nutrients and fiber, and it all comes in a salad.

"It really feeds the soul, more than just feeding the body," said Ali Khalife, co-owner of Fadi's Mediterranean Grill in Meyerland.

Peppers, broccoli, sweet potato, onions, you name it.  Nutritionists say every good meal contains plenty of vegetables that will help you live long and prosper.  Plants are not for wussies, dude.  So, why do some people hate the greens?

"They maybe never had it the right way," expressed Khalife.  "The way you flavor the food, the way you cook the food is really effective.   That's how you get actually people to eat more vegetables."

Also, did you know that vegetables such as basil, celery, garlic, avocado, carrots, arugula and asparagus are natural aphrodisiacs?  No prescription required.

In the end, there's nothing like a side of vegetarian food to add color and flavors to your barbecue.  So, get a knife and a cutting board and show that produce what you're made of.
