Question of the Week- The Importance of Vegetables and Your Weight
Today Carol’s VLOG and question of the week addresses the importance of vegetables in our diet.
You need at least 3-4 cups of vegetables a day or more.
Ways to prepare your vegetables:
The best way to eat your vegetables is raw. This packs the most nutrients and you get the best benefit from them. Make big salads and cut up veggies to snack on throughout the day.
The second way is to steam or sautee them on low heat. This will keep you from losing all the nutrients.
Baking or boiling would be the last way to prepare them but in soups and some recipes this is necessary just offset the nutrients lost in your other meals.
Never microwave your vegetables, this will strip out 97% of its nutrients.
The importance of dark green leafy vegetables are well known. Adding in Romaine lettuce, spinach and others to your diet will have a huge impact on your health and your waistline.
