I was NOT a vegatable eating up until three months ago. Yes, I would eat FROZEN broccoli but that was minimal until I discovered Ziploc Steam Bags. I now ONLY buy fresh vegatables & can't get enough of them. Putting ANY vegatable in these bags & microwave them they taste just like gold!
The Ziploc Steam Bags come in several sizes.

Steam from boiling water healed my cold within two days.
I had this asthma cold so I boiled water in a metal container. When the steam began to rise up from the boiling water, I put my face into the steam (don't do this if steam is too hot, turn down temp if so). I breathed in the steam as long as it wasn't too hot and it stopped the cold after 3 days of this.
Some vinegar in your diet may improve your blood sugar Nobumasa Ogawa, Ph.D., of Tokyo University in Tokyo, discovered that the acetic acid inhibits the activity of several carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, when vinegar is present in the intestines, some sugars and starches temporarily pass through without being digested, so they have less of an impact on blood sugar. Just two teaspoons of vinegar, taken with a meal, may help you keep better blood glucose control. See more info...
The easiest way to get the vinegar is by using an oil and vinegar salad dressing, vinaigrette dressings drizzled over steamed veggies, or whole wheat bread dipped in Olive Oil and vinegar
