    Dear Angu Aparna, On comparing the amount of efforts you put to collect and post the various nutrients in vegetable, my praising words are like a small pellet lifted and brought by a squirrel while Lord Rama was constructing a bridge over the ocean. Your best efforts you put are easily visible in your threads because they give complete information about the topic. thanks

    Re: Nutritional Values of Vegetables

    totally agreed with you,today we are so used to have junk food that the nutrition side of our diet is really avoided.

    Vegetables are a fresh source of getting those nutrients our body requires.

    Re: Nutritional Values of Vegetables

    How you can include more fruit and vegetables in your diet

    Once you start to eat healthily and if you couple this with a number of exercise sessions throughout the week, you will soon start to see and feel the benefits. You will lose weight, have more energy, feel happier, look better and generally be healthier. It might seem traumatic initially, but once you get into a routine, it'll become second nature and you won't know why you kicked up such a fuss in the first place.

    If you generally do not eat a lot of fruit and vegetables and are finding it difficult to add a few more portions to your daily diet, here are a few ideas to start you off:
    • Start the day with a glass of freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice
    • Add sliced banana, strawberries, kiwi to your breakfast cereal
    • Have a fruit smoothie for breakfast made with banana, yoghurt and other fruit
    • Add lettuce, sliced tomato, cucumber and rocket to sandwiches
    • Add diced red, orange and green pepper to tuna mayonnaise
    • Choose dried fruit snacks over crisps or chocolate
    • Add sliced fruit to yoghurt or other desserts
    • Choose healthy dips with vegetable crudités over unhealthy snacks
    • Make healthy homemade vegetable soups for lunch or dinner
    • Always have a side salad of lettuce, cucumber, tomato and onion with your meal
    • Try different and exotic salads for a change
    • Try to eat 3 different vegetables with your main meal
    • Have a fruit salad for dessert
    • Make healthy risottos or couscous with fresh vegetables

    Re: Nutritional Values of Vegetables

    Fresh, frozen or tinned?

    As long as you are consuming lots of fruit and vegetables, it doesn't really matter whether they are raw, cooked, tinned, dried, fresh or frozen.

    Obviously, care must be taken with tinned fruit, as it is often kept in a sweet syrup, which can cause tooth decay and other problems.

    Fresh fruit and vegetables that are in season are the best, as if they are eaten raw and as fresh as possible, valuable nutrients are less likely to be lost.
    Care must also be taken when cooking vegetables, as boiling them in lots of water can destroy up to 70% of vitamin C and other water-soluble nutrients. When boiling vegetables, use only a small amount of water, about 2cm, and cut the vegetables into small pieces in order to reduce cooking time.

    On the other hand, steaming is a better method of cooking because the vegetables do not actually come into contact with the water.

    It is also important to know that fruit and vegetables should be thoroughly washed in water in order to remove, dirt, insects and pesticides, however, they should not be left to soak in water, otherwise vitamins and minerals will also be lost in this way.
