3 Vegetables YOU Must Eat

These vegetables should be HIGH up on your grocery list:

1.  Eggplant  – This vegetable is a very good source of the water-soluble vitamin thiamine (aka B1), which plays an essential role in promoting healthy function of the nervous and cardiovascular systems.  Thiamine also helps in the conversions of carbs to glucose, your body’s primary source of energy.

2.  Asparagus – The high level of vitamin C helps your body produce collagen, which not only maintains the health of your skin but aids the health of your tendons, ligaments and blood vessels, all of which are essential for successful workouts.

3.  Red Bell Pepper – A 1 Cup serving provides over 100% of your DV of vitamin A.  This vitamin has been shown to promote lung health (think about those intense cardio workouts).

TIP:  Whenever possible, spend a little extra on organically grown produce.  If you choose non-organic, make sure to rinse your produce under running water for at least 20 seconds to remove as much pesticide residue as possible.

Happy Shopping!
