By Neill Abayon

Vegetables are extremely important sources of minerals, enzymes and vitamins. Most green vegetables also contain complete proteins of highest quality; in fact often of better biological value than proteins of animal sources – proteins of potatoes and green leafy vegetables are complete proteins of highest biological value.

Most vegetable should be eaten raw in form of raw salads. Some vegetables, such as potatoes, yams, squashes or green beans can also be cooked, baked or steamed.

Generous use of garlic, onions and numerous herbs and natural spices will improve your health and turn dull vegetable dishes into gourmet food.
