Should You Avoid Starchy #Vegetables? | Care2 Healthy Living

Is spinach always better than peas?

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, August 8, 1:46 AM

Did you know that all plant based veggies are nutritious and beneficial for your health? These include: 

 

  1. Sprouted greens (arugula, broccoli, radish, pea shoots, sunflower shoots). Sprouting helps make food more digestible so the seed can release its enzymes. Sprouted foods are 10 to 30 times more nutritious than mature plants.

 

 2.  Dark leafy greens (Arugula, beet greens, collard greens, dandelion greens, kale, fave greens, mustard greens, sorrel,   spinach, swiss chard, carrot tops, and turnip greens). Greens have more calcium than dairy foods supporting your bones and are rich in chlorophyll which is a blood builder, oxygenates your blood, and helps cleanse it. Chlorophyll gives you antioxidants which neutralize free radicals to prevent disease. Greens are cancer fighters and support your liver.

 

3.  Cruciferous (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, arugula, watercress, Brussels sprouts, radishes, mustard greens, turnip greens, and bok choy). These veggies are cancer fighters.

 

4.  Alliums (garlic, onion, green onions, leeks). Garlic is a natural antibiotic, supports your liver, as do onions which also support your immune system, prostrate health, and cancer.

 

5.  Root veggies (beets, carrots, parsnip, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, yams). Beets have cardio-protective effects and support athletic performance. Carrots are a top beta-carotene food. Parsnips are an under-rated veggie, sweet and earthy. Pumpkin is high in magnesium and supports heart health, eye health, promoting fertility and giving immunity a boost. Sweet potatoes are one of the best all round veggies to consume.

 

6.. Starchy veggies (corn (buy organic as 95% of corn is from GMO), peas, parsnip, potatoes, pumpkin, butternut squash, and sweet potatoes. Peas are a good source of plant protein. Butternut squash is another top beta-carotene foods.which are effective against cancers. Potatoes are a member of nightshade family.

 

7. Nightshade family includes tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers, and tobacco (which is a plant). Some people suffering with arthritis have problems with the alkaloids in these veggies. Alkaloids can block your body’s normal repair of collagen in joints. Do yourself a favor and skip the tobacco. Your lungs will thank you.

 

8. All other veggies: asparagus, bell peppers, eggplant, okra, sea veggies, snap peas, summer squashes, tomatoes, zucchini and any others that were missed. Bell peppers very high vitamin C content. Eggplant supports heart health, maintains weight and blood cholesterol levels and has anti-cancer effects. Nori, hijiki, wakame, arame, kombu and kelp are just a few of several varieties of sea veggies with potent effects on cancer. They are a rich source of many wonderful minerals, including magnesium, calcium, iron, and bioavailable iodine. Tomatoes are really a low sugar fruit which are a good source of lycopene, an antioxidant combatting cancer.

 

Mushrooms are from the fungi family, not really veggies. 

 

Health Tips:  Eat as many greens/veggies each day as you can. Greens/veggies are the very best food you can consume and will help you to stay thin, providing you’re not consuming any highly processed non foods and sugars. Eat the rainbow, dark pigmented have the most antioxidants which fight inflammation. Opt for red cabbage over green, purple carrots over orange, red onions over yellow. Buy organic when you can as well. Consuming organic has been shown to reduce pesticide levels.

 

Starchy veggies fill you up and are so much better for you than refined processed non foods. Eat a varied assortment of different greens/veggies every day. Pile your plate high with greens/veggies, whether it’s a salad or your main dish with some beans, lentils or chickpeas. Your body, brain, and gut bacteria will love you.
