Cabbage is very healthy and also versatile, as it can be prepared in many ways. The leaves can be filled with a rice and meat mixture and baked to create a popular dish called cabbage rolls. A salad called coleslaw can be made from raw shredded cabbage. Cabbage is also good cut into wedges and steamed as a vegetable side dish. Cabbage is high in antioxidants, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C.

 

Carrots are another of the healthiest vegetables that are also versatile. They can be cut into circular slices and boiled or diced and mixed in with cooked peas. Carrots are also popular when chopped into sticks to eat raw for snacks. Carrots provide fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and beta-carotene. Beta-carotene has antioxidant qualities and is converted by the body into Vitamin A.

Both summer and winter species of Squash are full of nutrients, containing trace amounts of B vitamins and providing healthy doses of iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Squash rinds also contain beta-carotene. Vegetables in this family are a staple of many weight-loss diets because they are low in both calories and carbohydrates.
