Vegetables are vitally important to our health. They supply us with the vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals needed to keep our bodies healthy. But many people don't eat nearly enough vegetables in their regular diet. Did you know the USDA recommends that adults eat between 17 to 21 cups of vegetables a week?
