All international guidelines for healthy eating encourage the consumption of vegetables, usually lacking in omnivorous diets.
There are dozens of different types of vegetables, which can be divided into four main subgroups:
Dark green vegetables: broccoli, chard, black cabbage, cabbage, chicory, turnip greens, watercress, endive, dark green leaf salad of various types, lettuce, rocket, spinach.
These vegetables are particularly rich in fiber, folic acid, riboflavin, vitamin C, E and K, beta-carotene, potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium, phytochemicals.
Orange vegetables: carrot, yellow pepper, various types of pumpkin, sweet potato; they are free sources of beta-carotene, a vitamin with high antioxidant power.
Starchy vegetables are potatoes and other tubers, mainly starch sources.
Other vegetables: artichoke, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, green cabbage, cucumber, onion, mushrooms, iceberg lettuce, aubergine, green or red pepper, tomato, tomato puree and tomato juice, celery, zucchini, and many others.
By their nature, most vegetables are low in fat, low in calories, and zero in cholesterol. Consuming different types of fresh raw or undercooked vegetables are the best way.
Vegetables are also a source of vegetable protein: as a percentage of total calories, the value does not differ from that of meat.
In a regular varied diet, which therefore also includes cereals and legumes, vegetables help to provide complete protein.
Vegetables are rich in folic acid and beta-carotene (vitamin A), mainly found in yellow-orange vegetables, and have good potassium content.
They contain vitamin E, vitamin C, and vitamin K, and some are good sources of calcium. Vegetables are good sources of iron, and all are rich in phytochemicals.
The presence of all these essential nutrients, which bring great nutritional benefits, makes vegetables a food that should be consumed in abundance in all kinds of diets, especially omnivorous diets, to counter, at least in part, the harmful effect of animal foods.
