Top 10 Healthiest Vegetables


Samir Becic and his Health Fitness Revolution team has done some research for your benefit and picked 10 of the healthiest vegetables to include into your diet:

  •  Sweet Potatoes: Unlike regular potatoes, these are often referred to as an “anti-diabetic” vegetable. Sweet potatoes actually stabilize blood sugar level and lower insulin resistance in addition to being packed with anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Mushrooms: Though technically a fungus, they deserve a spot on the list because they are packed with protein, fiber, vitamin C, B vitamins, calcium, antioxidants and minerals. Mushrooms also offer medicinal properties that reduce inflammation, lower your risk of cancer, boost immune function and support detoxification.
  • Avocados: Rich in oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that lowers your bad “LDL” cholesterol, raises your good “HDL” cholesterol and offers protection against breast cancer.
  • Spinach:  Contains at least 13 different flavonoid compounds that have both antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Also high in B-Complex Vitamins, crucial in producing serotonin, a mood-boosting chemical.
  • Broccoli: Contain components that help regulate a system of cancer-fighting enzymes in your body, while helping to stop the growth of cancer cells. Also contains sulforaphane, which boosts your liver’s ability to detoxify.
  • Tomatoes: Contain Lycopene which helps protect against certain types of cancer. Cooked tomatoes contain even more lycopene than fresh ones.
  • Eggplants: Loaded with vitamins and minerals, eggplants help protect against cancer, aid weight loss because of high amount of fiber, and helps improve skin tone.
  • Artichokes: Packed with potassium, vitamin C, folate and magnesium. These are low in calories and full of nutrition.

  • Bok Choy: Known as chinese cabbage, these green leaves are high in potassium, calcium, iron, and vitamins A and C.
  • Brussel Sprouts: For a green vegetable, they are uncommonly high in protein and are an excellent source of vitamins C and K.
