Potato Salad Chixen Pot Pie – featuring @BeyondMeat + Food for Thought

This post is linked to the Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck event. Have you ever heard of the idea that fruits and vegetables can resemble the human organs that their nutrients benefit the most? Here’s a quick look if you’ve missed it along the way.  In reality, there are just so many different health benefits that come from eating Brussels Sprouts (remembered the ‘s’ Rika! ) that it really does throw the whole “fresh foods vs. body part benefit theory” right out the window.  But, it’s still a nice thought, if only for a few seconds of your day, that fruits and veggies are somehow color coded for ease of use for us.
