Generally speaking, most people do not really want to eat vegetables, most especially kids and even young people. When ask for their favourite food, vegetables are most of the time not included in the list of favourites. The list will only include burger, fried chicken, fries, pizza, chocolates, ice cream, but never food with lots of vegetables on it or the vegetable as its main ingredient.
But there are absolutely many things that we are missing for not eating vegetables or even for not including just a little amount vegetables in our diet. And there are certainly many reasons for vegetables to be turned into our favourite food. We can get a lot of benefits from it and it is definitely good of our body.
For one, it is full of vitamins and minerals that are good for our health. Vegetables have a lot of nutrients to offer that can be good for the body. For example, most vegetables are said to have phytochemicals that can help in fighting aging and even cancer. Eating vegetables can also help in lowering the risk of having heart disease and the like. Vegetables also contain a lot of fibre compared to meat such as beef, pork, chicken, and so on that we usually love, which in fact contains a lot of fats and cholesterol that if one eats too much, it can be really harmful to our health. Also, fibre in vegetables is especially good when it comes to digestion. It is said that when your body digests food well, then you are receiving a lot of nutrients from the food that you are eating. It is also good in removing toxins and other wastes in your body because it contains elements that can attract such toxins and waste. Vegetables are also good for the skin. No wonder those who eat lots of vegetables have healthier skin than those who does not. Eating vegetables can give you healthy skin as well as it can give you such natural glow.
However, despite all these benefits one can get from eating vegetables and even more, a lot of people are still not fond of eating vegetables, especially those that can be eaten raw. Even so, if one does not want to eat vegetables because of its taste and yet still want to reap the benefits of eating such, he or she can still do so. There are a lot of ways these days. And one can make one on her own. For example, if one does not want to eat vegetables as it is, he or she can make shakes and smoothies. There are even vegetable flavoured ice creams these days.
