The World’s 10 Most Nutritious Vegetables

If Mom was constantly nagging you as a child to eat up all your vegetables, it was not without good reason.  As rich sources of a whole host of vitamins, minerals, protein, natural sugar, carbohydrates, fiber, natural fat, calcium, iron and more, they really are nature’s super foods.

Just what are the world’s top 10 most nutritious vegetables though?  According to several reliable sources, the top 10 list looks like this, and if you are expecting it to contain exotic vegetables that you have never even heard of, think again…

  1. Broccoli
  2. Spinach
  3. Brussels sprouts
  4. Lima beans
  5. Peas
  6. Asparagus
  7. Artichokes
  8. Cauliflower
  9. Sweet potatoes
  10. Carrots

You see?  Ten vegetables that are all readily available in stores and supermarkets everywhere and that hardly rank as the world’s most expensive foodstuffs, so there is no excuse for not listening to Mom’s sound advice.  With just five portions of fresh vegetables and fruit a day, you can literally eat your way to good health.
