    Vegetables for Vibrant Health

    Post by islandgrl on Sun Apr 11, 2010 1:52 pm

    Onions balance our blood sugar as they are a source of chromium, which is a mineral that helps yours cells respond to insulin. Essentially, this means onions are a great food for diabetics and anyone wanting to regulate their blood sugar, it's a bonus they are sweet and delicious.

    Sweet bell peppers are colourful veggies packed with vitamins such as A and C and powerful antioxidants. They are also a great source of lycopene, a carotenoid correlated with reducing certain cancers such as prostate, cervical, bladder and pancreas. When it comes to choosing produce, the brighter the better as you get more antioxidants.

    Seeing asparagus in the stores is a sure sign of spring. In Canada you can locally-grown asparagus at farmers' markets and grocery stores. Most notably, they are a source of vitamin K and folate. Folate is a heart healthy vitamin you want to eat every single day. A natural diuretic, asparagus is helpful for water retention because it's a source of potassium
