Although when we were kids it was hard for our moms to make us eat vegetables, now as grown persons we know the importance of including vegetables in our diet. And beleive it or not, we got many benefits by eating healthy vegetables like for example lower blood presure, low risk of a heart disease, stroke, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and according to some people even some cancers.

Vegetables are also perfect if you are in a diet trying to loose some weight. The fact that they are low in calories, but rich in fiber and many nutrients, they help to maintain an efficient metabolism.

We have to remember also that vegetables are a great source of vitamins and some important minerals. The World Health Organization recommends a minimum daily intake of at least 5 portions of vegetables and fruits. It’s not a surprised that by doing this we would be taking our portion of vitamin A, vitamin B-complex, vitamin C, E and K.

So next time you have on your plate a delicious vegetables salad, think about all the health issues you can avoid by just having your daily portion of vegetables.
