The portion on the plate, which always has a special place reserved for itself, is vegetables. They decorate the platter with their colors-red, orange, yellow or green and packs in quite a surprising amount of health benefits too. No matter how much we despise the greens and edible bulbs, tubers, and seeds, we cannot deny the amount of nutrition they replenish our body with. From leafy greens to edible bulbs to vegetables to sweet-starchy roots - nearly all vegetables add goodness to your plate. Vegetables, like fruit, are low in fat, and contain large amounts of vitamins and minerals. They are home to many antioxidants. Vegetables not only save the body from stress, disease, cancers, poor immunity, but also help keep the body fit and healthy. Overflowing with health boosting nutrients, we should make it a point to incorporate at least five to seven different kinds of vegetables in our diet every day. This can seem like a daunting task as busy schedules, being on the run and the temptations to binge on the junk food can topple your diet plans. However, one should make it a point to have the greens by eating lot of salads, including them in the sandwiches or just enjoying them with a tasty dip! Whatever way you choose to relish your veggies, remember that they are the vital source of your daily nutrition and the more you can eat them, the merrier it will be!
