Powerhouse Vegetables You Should Be Eating

Spinach

This leafy green is high in vitamins C, A, and K, as well as manganese. Including 1.5 cups of green, leafy vegetables in your daily diet may help you avoid type 2 diabetes.

Cooking tip: Sneak spinach into your everyday routine by blending it into smoothies or scrambling it into scrambled eggs and casseroles.

Red Bell Pepper

It's commonly mistaken for a vegetable, although it's actually a fruit. B vitamins, beta carotene, and more than double your daily vitamin C requirement are all found in one medium pepper.

Cooking tip: Cut the tops off peppers, remove the interior white membranes and seeds, then roast until cooked for a fun main meal. Fill with your favorite whole-grain salad to finish.


Broccoli

Broccoli is a rock star of nature. It's a good source of natural plant compounds that have been demonstrated to reduce the incidence of some malignancies (though many other things also affect your cancer risk). Each cup of florets also contains a significant amount of vitamins C and K.

Cooking tip: For a quick side dish, steam the florets. To conceal the broccoli flavor, use them to stir-fries, frittatas, and even smoothies that have naturally sweet ingredients like fruit.
