Today we celebrate:

Fresh Veggie Day or Eat Your Vegetables Day – Celebrated on this day every year, this is a day to have fresh vegetables with every meal.  Fresh veggies, in my opinion, taste so much better than frozen or canned. Although there is nothing wrong with the frozen and canned options, fresh is far more flavorful and they retain more of their vitamins and nutrients. If you have the option, chose fresh.

National Apple Strudel Day – Apple filling wrapped in a flaky, delicious pastry. Days like this make me sad that I have to be gluten-free.

Stewarts Root Beer Day – If you are a fan of root beer, which I am not, I have heard that Stewarts brand is one of the best since it is based on the root beer fountain sodas of old. Have some today and enjoy the feelings of the Good Old Days that they bring to you.

World Day To Combat Desertification and Drought – This day was declared in 1994 by the United Nations General Assembly. The first celebration day was in 1995. This is a day to focus on the serious problems of drought and desertification that many countries, particularly in Africa, face today. Solutions are possible if we work together, and of course, with the climate changing there may many other places experiencing the same problems.

To celebrate today, eat veggies with every meal.  At lunch you can also eat apple strudel and root beer while you think of a plan to combat desertification and drought.
