There really isn’t any bad vegetables, but some are better than others. If your looking to lose weight stay away from some of the more starchy veggies like potatoes. However potatoes are a great vegetable if you are trying to build muscle and are active at the gym. Just like Bananas, Potatoes are also extremely high in potassium which helps with the rebuilding stage of torn muscles. Other veggies that should be in your regular diet include:

Tomatoes- This vegetable is truly amazing; from its anti- oxidants that help prevent cancers, to the enzymes that help break down foods for digestion, the tomato is truly a delicious helper (Not to mention thats its jam packed with almost all then main nutrients and vitamins).  

Broccoli- Is a great source of fiber, iron, vitamins and diseases fighting anti oxidants. Broccoli is best served when its steamed for about 7 minutes and if your really not a fan of the taste then try it with a bit of cheese sprinkled over it.

Spinach-  Pop-eye that crazy sailer was on to something pounding back all that spinach, the most vitamin rich vegetable of them all. Spinach can also help prevent diseases like arthritis, osteoporoses, heart disease and many forms of cancers. To get all the vitamins out of spinach your best bet is to steam it for 1-2 minutes from when the water is boiling.   

Between these 3 vegetables you’ll cover almost all your necessary vitamins and minerals throughout the day, but be sure to eat a balanced diet and don’t skip out on your veggies.
