Vegetable or Not?

To bring some lightness to the topic after yesterday’s journal prompt, we’ll turn our focus to research and move forward with information that can help us make educated decisions.

Did you know that a typical bag of “mixed vegetables” only contains one actual vegetable? Carrots = vegetable, Corn = grain, Green Beans = legume (Even then, carrots are one of the sweetest vegetables out there).

Can you name actual vegetables? Have you ever looked up a list of vegetables or studied a categorized list of food? Take some time to do it today. Make a list of foods that are considered to be vegetables. Having this understanding can help you move forward with an increased knowledge base so that you can improve your nutrient intake through whole foods/vegetables.
