We meet again, vegetables. 🥗🥗🥗 I made @weeknightbite's sweet potato and kale recipe tonight, which was so good it made me seriously consider embracing this whole "salad for dinner" thing. Head over to @weeknightbite for the recipe!

The study profiled 1,019 U.S. residents aged 18 to 34 and was balanced in terms of census region, age and household income. Millennials accounted for 310 Americans in the sample.

In addition to photographing their food, millennials in the study were more likely than those who were 35-plus to “love cooking” and consider themselves “experts in the kitchen.”
