The Best Vegetables to Keep You Healthy

Postby packermover » Wed May 28, 2014 2:33 pm

Carrots
Common orange carrots are betacarotene powerhouses, and rainbow carrots are full of other nutritional assets - red carrots have extra lycopene and purple carrots are higher in antioxidants. Did you know that cooking carrots actually make their nutrients more bioavailable to you? And their nutrients are best absorbed if eaten with a little fat, so feel free to saute with that olive oil!
Spinach
That Popeye knew a thing or two about veggies, and his preferred leafy green is one of the most vitamin-packed foods you can find! Spinach also has anti-cancer carotenoids and it is a great source of iron. But don't overcook spinach, or you risk losing much of its nutritional value. (Baby spinach salad? Now you're talking.)
Beets
You've probably noticed by now that all these very healthy vegetables are also bright and colorful! Ruby-colored beets are a unique source of phytonutrients called betalains which are great for anti-inflammatory and detoxification support. Try them raw in a salad for the most nutritional impact.

Canada's Food Guide prescribes eating one dull green and can someone do my assignment one orange vegetable, for example, sweet potatoes, every day. Orange vegetables are basic for the vitamin A (regularly found as beta-carotene) they give.

Here are my list:
1. Sweet potatoes
Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus.
2. Carrots
Carrots were one of the vegetables examined in recent research on foods rich in beta-carotene and bone health. More specifically, intake of yellow/orange and green vegetables were evaluated to see if greater intake was related to greater bone mass.
3. Maize (corn)
Health benefits of corn include controlling diabetes, prevention of heart ailments, lowering hypertension and prevention of neural-tube defects at birth. Corn or maize is one of the most popular cereals in the world and forms the staple food in many countries, including the United States and many African countries.

Carrots and Tomatoes.
Carrots are mentioned so much on top, we can skip this.
Tomatoes, surprisingly, are not. It is called the Gem of Vegetables, since its fresh, yummy and have amazingly large amount of Vitamin B and C. :lol:
