Since birth, you most likely have been told by your mother, your father, your grandma, your grandpa, and/or anyone in your life that cares about you the importance of eating vegetables. Sure, when you're a kid, you don't really think about "making healthy choices," which is essentially why your parents did it for you. However, now you are getting older, and these choices need to be implemented into your lifestyle as well as the lifestyle of your own children. But the last remaining question you have is, why?
First of all, most vegetables are packed with fiber. Fiber is an awesome component in the human diet because it keeps your digestion process flowing without any problems as long as you get an adequate amount. Fiber is also a key ingredient if you are trying to lose or maintain your weight. It makes you feel full quicker and it keeps you full longer. This allows you to avoid excess overeating during meals, and also helps prevent you from eating when you're not hungry because it keeps you satisfied. Fiber is naturally found in vegetables and in a time period where food is constantly being "enriched" with things, this is a definite plus.
Another reason vegetables are so good for you is because they are extremely low in calories as well as cholesterol. People who partake in complete vegetarian diets have very good health. Vegetarian diets help reduce risk of uric acid kidney stone formation as well as lowering cholesterol. Vegetables are also packed with antioxidants which help prevent many different types of cancer. The vitamins and minerals that are found in most vegetables are actually a force field that are able to prevent cancer cells from being distributed through the body which ultimately halts the growth of the disease.
Vegetables also help other parts of your body as well. Your teeth and hair will be stronger from the mineral intake that you ingest through your veggies. Your heart rate, assuming that you do not overeat red meats or things packed with fat, will usually be normal, and your blood pressure should be normal as well. Your circulation is definitely positively affected by vegetables as well. With all of these positive affects combined, you are going to feel extremely healthy and happy overall. When you look good, your feel good and when you feel good, you look good. Vegetables make this possible. These are only some of the ways that vegetables improve your overall appearance!
But what is the very best part about incorporating vegetables into your every day diet? The price! The purchasing of vegetables is very easy on your wallet. Veggies are much cheaper then meat, especially lean cuts of meat or any of the healthier options. This essentially means that your healthiest food choices won't break your bank! So whether you are cooking for one, for two, or for a family of four, vegetables can be incorporated at hardly any cost to you but you, and everyone else who eats veggies with you, will reap the benefits as well!
