Eat Your Veggies

by Coach Courtney, RD

Almost all “health-conscious” diets agree on one thing ... eat your veggies. If someone were to ask me the single best change they could make to improve their diet - I would advocate that they eat veggies for at least two meals a day.

1. Vegetables are loaded with nutrients that your body thrives on

Vegetables are bursting with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. The terminology sounds intimidating - but put simply, these nutrients reduce your risk for chronic disease (like cancer and diabetes), help you optimize your energy levels, and prevent you from getting sick.

2. Vegetables have volume, but not a lot of calories.

The volume from veggies can help you control energy balance to maintain a healthy body weight or lose body fat (without feeling too hungry!). Example: 20g of tortilla chips is the same amount of calories as 580g of zucchini!
