Old country saying:

“The warmer the day, the greener the dish.”

This old country saying has a very illusive meaning. Often sayings are passed on with their meanings. We are taught them at school or our families readily tell us the meanings and so they are told to each generation. The above saying is probably one of the most useful but is less widely known.

We know that when the weather is hot we need to keep hydrated but few know that greens help the body to retain liquid and prevent it becoming dehydrated so quickly. What is so mysterious is how did people know this generations ago?

“The warmer the day, the greener the dish.”
