In order to live a healthy life, there are rules that need to be followed, such as eating plenty of fruits and vegetables and also checking to make sure your health is doing well. The truth is, not all vegetables are the same, so if you’re going to eat vegetables, you should eat these because they are superb.

Eating vegetables is always a good idea because they prevent such things as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, and other chronic diseases. They contain fiber, vitamins and minerals that protect the body’s health. The way to judge the strength of a vegetable is by determining its net carbs. The formula is simple: Total carbohydrates minus fiber equal net carbohydrates. In this case, less is better. The lower the net carbohydrates, the higher the fiber, and that’s a good thing.

The best ‘super’ vegetables
All leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables lead the pack in low net carbs. Cruciferous means that the vegetables are members of the cruciferous, or cabbage, family of vegetables. The family includes:
* cabbage
* broccoli cabbage
* cauliflower
* Brussels sprouts
* kale
* bok choy

These vegetables are considered “super vegetables” by many in the medical field because of the benefits they provide. This includes lowering the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, kidney stones, bone loss, eye disease and certain types of cancer

Of course, all vegetables are good for you. If you are not a vegetable lover, try different vegetables fixed in different ways until you find those you really like. Or eat them raw. Don’t forget to get a exercise routine started to pair it with your more healthy vegetable filled life. I bought cycling shoes recently just to get motivated for my biking workouts! Don’t be scared to bribe yourself!
