Roundup: Good Greens

Roundup: Good Greens

Ever since Scarlett was little I’ve told her that greens will make her have stronger muscles, run faster and help her hair grow long (what girl doesn’t want good hair). It seems to have worked since she really doesn’t have an issue with anything green. She is basically the opposite of myself. I think I was in my 20’s before I started eating green vegetables.

I don’t feel bad offering her those promises about the broccoli on her plate because even if they don’t help her hair grow longer (if only!), I know what they are doing for her body is far more beneficial. However, I could use the hair growing thing for myself. Anyone? Bueller?
