And this great list of vegetables will help you to choose the healthiest vegetables.
Eating vegetables gives you so many health benefits that all the public health agencies recommend at least 3 to 5 servings a day. But almost nobody is following this advice.
List of Vegetables Health benefits
Even though scientific research shows that everyone needs to make more healthy choices from the vegetables list, that’s not the case. Less than 10% get the recommended amounts.
And the majority of people in this country don't eat any healthy vegetables at all! Yet a nutritious diet, rich in high fiber vegetable nutrients, can help you achieve the following vegetable benefits:
- Reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes,
- Decrease the risk of coronary heart disease,
- Lower your calorie intake for healthy weight maintenance,
- Decrease your risk of a stroke and other cardiovascular diseases,
- Reduce the risk of developing kidney stones and osteoporosis from bone loss,
- And protect against specific cancers, such as mouth, stomach and colon-rectum cancer.

Eating more vegetables is a lot easier today than it used to be. Now days, you can buy all sorts of healthy and convenient "fast food vegetables" at your local supermarket.
You'll find packages of tasty baby carrots, celery sticks and sweet peppers that you can take with you anywhere. There are also pre-washed bags of a wide variety of salad greens and mixes that can be thrown together with some cherry tomatoes to whip up a quick salad.
There's shredded cabbage to make cole slaw, or use in your salad, and many other cut veggies that can be eaten raw, steamed, stir fried or used in soups. They even have organic varieties.
