If your weight scales are worrying you, we suggest you opt for vegetables in your diet.
                       Vegetables are the best food for dieters because most all are ultra-low in calories and have minimal fat. And, in any case, they are good choice for your diet. They are low in calories and high in nutrition, so they are always going to help you.





Steaming


Steaming your vegetables is a nice way to induct almost all their nutrition in your body. For your taste, you could add some salt or sauce to it. Or you could just cut small pieces of onion and mix them in the vegetables. The vegetables would then both be nutritious and low on calories.


Eating Raw


When you eat vegetables raw, you get all their nutrition. Just wash them thoroughly before consuming. This would get them rid of bacteria. Now you can cut them to pieces and add salt or sauce. May be you will not like eating the preparation when you begin. But, gradually, you will develop taste for it. 


Boiling


Put your vegetables with some water in a proper utensil. Keep it on your burner for some time. However, be mindful not to boil it for too long or they would lose nutrition value. Cut them, add some supplements as per your taste and eat. Simple!


Some Vegetables Must be Cooked


A few vegetables refuse to follow the nutrition rules of steaming, eating raw and boiling. They must be cooked before eating else they would cause harm to your body. Alfalfa, if uncooked, counteracts vitamin E and damages liver or muscles. Raw bamboo shoots contain poisonous amounts of cyanogens that cause cyanide poisoning. So cook them thoroughly.
