We all know we should eat our vegetables, our mothers have told us that since we were kids… but somehow we don’t get enough of them as adults! The daily recommended serving amount is 2 – 3.
A few reasons why they’re important:
- Nutrient Dense – Vegetables have a lot of vitamins and minerals that other foods just don’t have!
- Disease Prevention – Eating 2-3 daily servings of vegetables can lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.
- Stabilize Blood Sugar – Since veggies are almost FREE calories, the breakdown of cellulose fibers allows carbohydrates to be released slowly.
Here is a list of nutrient dense super veggies to mix into your diet:
- Brussel Sprouts
- Sweet potatoes
