I call veggies (and fruit) health. They are packed full of vitamins, minerals and fiber and they’re low in calories to boot! I recommend eating a variety of vegetables of all different colors. Non-starchy veggies (everything but the starchy veggies: peas, beans, corn, potatoes, winter squash, parsnips and pumpkin) should take up half your plate. Starchy veggies go on one-quarter of your plate. Make sure you prepare your veggies in a healthy manner!
