Top Vegetables to Eat
Nutritional powerhouses aka vegetables are one of the miraculous ways in which you can ensure your health is in check. From kale to asparagus to onions, every bite delivers a potent dose of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that prevents and repairs damage to cells within your body.

There really are an abundance of vegetables (and fruits) that can be consumed.  These all come in different shapes, colours, sizes making your plate a rainbow of colours and nutrients. The top vegetable suggestions are as follows:

Carrot


High in Vitamin A and fibre, they are great shredded into any sauce or muffin batter.  They are a handy snack that can be easily popped into any lunch bag;

Spinach

High in B group vitamins, lutein, magnesium, folate, calcium, iron, sulphur, potassium amongst others.
The sulphur content of spinach makes it a great food or cleaning out the liver whilst the calcium, vitamin k and magnesium content is important for bone health.

Broccoli

A cruserfirous vegetable, it contains substances called indoles which can potentially be cancer inhibiting.  Brocolli is also high in Vitamins A and C, calcium and fibre.

Sweet Potato

Asparagus

Kale
