Don’t forget to add white vegetables to your meals as well as greens.
Researchers say that they are often overlooked, yet cauliflower, onions, mushrooms and turnips all contribute important amounts of essential nutrients and are good sources of fibre.
The team, from Purdue University in Indiana, U.S., say that white vegetables are a ‘forgotten source of nutrients’, but that they actually represent a ‘nutrient powerhouse in their own right’.
Writing in the journal Advances in Nutrition, Professor Connie Weaver said “It’s recommended that the variety of fruits and vegetables consumed daily should include dark green and orange vegetables, but no such recommendation exists for white vegetables, even though they are rich in fibre, potassium and magnesium.”
