Some vegetables that are good for your health are pumpkin, cucumber, and zucchini. Spinich, cale, tomatoes, onions, garlic, shallot, potatoes, yams, sweet potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts and asparagus are just some examples of vegetables that are good for your health. You should eat at least five kinds of vegetable and two kinds of fruit every day for good health.

The general rule is the more colorful the veg, the more nutrients in it. The exception is cruciferous veg[ looks like a cross in the center when cut in half top to bottom ] These are particularly good against cancer and include cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels Sprouts.
