Health Tip: Get More Nutrients From Veggies

(HealthDay News) -- Vegetables can be excellent sources of nutrients, but some veggies are better than others.

The Myplate.gov website suggests:

  • Choosing potassium-rich vegetables such as sweet potatoes, white potatoes, tomato products, kidney beans, lima beans, spinach, soybeans and lentils.
  • Using sauces and seasonings sparingly, because they can quickly add fat and calories. Read nutrition labels and stick to plain vegetables.
  • Cutting down on sodium by preparing fresh vegetables instead of packaged or processed meals.
  • Looking for canned vegetables marked low-sodium, no-sodium or no salt added.
