Focus On Vegetables

 

Generally speaking, vegetables contain very few calories because they provide very little fat and little to fair amounts or protein (mostly incompletely protein), while contributing a wealth of vitamins, minerals, and sometimes enzymes that must be present for the body to properly metabolize proteins, carbohydrates and fats.

Some vegetable contain more fiber than others but the presence of dietary fiber in vegetables can help to keep you slim by making you chew and filling your stomach with bulk that passes through the digestive tract. Dietary fiber is never converted to fat, and actually helps remove fat from the system.

I generally try to include recipes for the many vegetables available but have not come close to giving a recipe for all the different kinds of vegetables that exist. It is important to your health that you learn to cook with vegetables and include them in all of your meals. Send in your favorite vegetable recipes and share the wealth of health!
