There is no end when it comes to vegetables. There are always new vegetable topics that can be discussed. This time, I have decided to talk about one of my favorite topics about vegetables: the best vegetables that you can eat with pretty much anything.
I can guarantee that these vegetables are delicious and healthy. Also, it’s fun to keep experimenting and see for yourself how you can incorporate all these vegetables into your diets.
Let’s start the list with a very popular vegetable – kale. One kale leave provides healthy amounts of vitamin K, C, and A. People with high cholesterol will benefit a lot from regularly eating Kale as it’s able to reduce bad cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein.
Kale can be cooked or turned into juice. It’s also popular to eat baby kale in pasta dishes, sandwiches, and pasta. Kale are also available as chips if you prefer it that way.
I personally love peas so much – they’re sweet, juicy, and starchy. One cooked cup of peas contains 134 calories and full of fiber, protein, vitamin B, A, C, and K. If you want to get more plant-based protein from your diet, you should try adding more peas.
People with digestive problems are recommended to eat more peas. Peas contain fiber, which supports the good kind of bacteria in the gut. When eaten regularly, no more irregular bowel movements.
I don’t believe there’s anyone in the world who has never had a carrot before. Carrots are like a magical food – they’re good with anything and make your food better. You can get enough calories from a single carrot, as each cup of chopped carrots has about 52 calories.
People who need vitamin A, such as people who want better eyesight, should regularly consume carrots. Carrots have a lot of vitamin A, way more than the daily recommended intake of an adult. If you care about your eyes, then you can’t ignore carrots.
Yes, I know that tomatoes are technically fruit. But it’s okay to treat them like a vegetable too, and tomatoes definitely fit the theme of this article. Tomatoes are rich in potassium and vitamin C and can be eaten with anything.
There are so many ways of preparing carrots, and it’s amazing to see the variations of it. You can eat tomatoes raw or cooked. But it’s recommended to eat them cooked, as tomatoes release more lycopene when cooked.
This powerful vegetable is one of the healthiest vegetables on earth. One cup or 30 grams of spinach contains more than 50% of your daily vitamin A and K needs. And the number of calories you get? Only 7. Spinach is also effective at reducing the risk of chronic diseases. Consuming spinach regularly improves the health of your heart and lowers blood pressure.
I know that many people don’t like broccoli, but if you do like them, you can eat them daily with anything. There are also ways to make broccoli taste more delicious. For example, you can roast them, steam them, or you can turn broccoli into a salad. Broccoli is rich in vitamin C, A, and K, and a piece of broccoli has a very low calorie.
Potatoes are the king of vegetables when it comes to flexibility. There are so many dishes that use potatoes are either the main or side ingredient. Potatoes taste delicious and can be fried, steamed, baked, etc.
Potatoes are also popularly used in weight-loss diets. They contain fiber, potassium, and iron. Eating enough potatoes could give you enough energy for the day.
There are three variations of bell peppers: red, orange, and yellow. Some people also love unripe bell peppers because they taste less sweet than ripe ones. A cup of red bell pepper contains 39 calories, vitamin C and B6, folate, and beta-carotene.
Just like potatoes, bell peppers are very flexible. Popular ways of eating bell peppers are with pasta, salad, sliced and eaten with guacamole or hummus, and scrambled eggs.
Vegetables are delicious, healthy, and versatile
More people need to eat vegetables regularly. They’re so versatile and healthy that there’s no reason to not eat them at all. If you already have plans of what you’re going to eat in a day, try to add more variety of vegetables if possible.
