What is the best vegtable?

The best vegetable is the one you actually eat! :) Vegetables contain vitamins, minerals, and even protein. You can find out which vegetables are highest in nutrients by looking at various canned vegetables and comparing ingredients listed on the labels. But once you find the most nutritious canned vegetable, you should see if you can get that vegetable either fresh or frozen, because canned vegetables usually contain extra salt, and the heat required for processing can kill nutrients as well. There are other ways to find the best vegetables. You can search "nutrients in vegetables" on Google or other search engines, and click on links that give you charts to compare foods. You can also call your local hospital's dietary department and see if they have brochures on nutrition for the general public.
