Cooking with vegetables can be tricky for guys typically who rely on salty and fatty processed food to feed a huge spare tire. But it’s a good idea to get into the habit of eating fresh whole foods on a daily basis if you like to live and don’t want to suffer through awful things like heart disease. But with veggies, you can easily overcook them and turn ’em soggy, which means you won’t eat ’em. And undercooked, they taste like, well, veggies.
A new book in the Thug Kitchen 101 series, Thug Kitchen 101: Fast as F*ck ($18 @ Amazon.com)” provides easy-to-follow instructions on how to cook simple yet healthy recipes, using colorful vegetables you think about eating but never do.

The cookbook not only gives you instructions for how to cook but shares the benefits of using ingredients such as chickpeas. You can learn more about how vegetables can benefit your physical, mental, and emotional health.
