Here is a delicious chef-approved recipe for your meatless Monday. Incorporating vegetables into your daily diet is as important as drinking water. Vegetables provide important vitamins and nutrients along with dietary fiber, which has been proven to help reduce blood cholesterol levels and aid digestive function.  For more healthy recipes and nutrition tips, make sure to follow us online.
