Conclusion: 3 ideal dishes with vegetables to boost up your nutrients intake
Vegetables are a must in your diet since the regular intake will provide you with vitamins, antioxidants, fibre, proteins and many other nutrients that are essential for the correct balance, nutrition and functioning of our organism.
The first recipe uses cabbage. Cabbage leaves are highly nutritious and contain phytochemicals that are potent antioxidants which protect against different types of cancer and reduce cholesterol in the blood. Vitamin C is also present in this vegetable, and it helps to develop resistance against infections and inflammation.
Cabbage contains pantothenic acid and other vitamins that are essential for our body to replenish. Potassium, manganese, iron and magnesium are also present. Vitamin K has a crucial role in bone health and helps to reduce neuronal damage in Alzheimer’s disease.
The second dish listed above, the saute, contains mainly carrots. Carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotene, fibre, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants. Apart from contributing to weight loss, they lower cholesterol and improve eye health.
The last dish, a soup rich in nutrients contains tuna. This last one is an exciting option to experiment not exclusively with vegetables, but a little bit further beyond with tuna fish, which is an essential source of omega-3 fatty acids. You can find these types of acids only in fish, nuts and seed.
