How to Be Healthy

Joey, age 7, has a new pet project. He's writing a book called How to Be Healthy. This was his own idea, and he's slowly typing it up on the computer himself. Here's what he has so far:

How to be healthy: part 1

Two of the main healthy foods are fruits and vegetables. Especially green vegetables. Green vegetables like peas, lettuce, broccoli, brussels sprouts, green beans, spinach. Some of the healthiest fruits are grapes, apples, strawberries, and bananas.

How to be healthy: part 2

A fairly healthy fruit is an orange. A fairly healthy vegetable is an artichoke. An artichoke is green. The name makes you think you would choke on it. You won't, that's just it's name. An orange is the color orange (obviously). You are suppose to peel the top off because you are not suppose to eat it. That would be kind of gross.

How to be healthy: part 3

A lot of people think that a tomato is a vegetable. It's not. It's a fruit, but it has a lot of sauce. That is one of the only fruits with sauce. A lot of people think that a potato is a vegetable. It's not. It is a root. It grows out of the ground.

This kid slays me, I tell you! The really funny thing is the fact that he won't go within 50 yards of a green vegetable.

Stay tuned for future chapters. I can't wait to see what he has to say about meat!
