Green vegetables are generally low in calories. Including low calorie foods in the diet helps us to maintain a healthy weight.
They are usually rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals or plant chemicals. All of these ingredients helps to maintain a good quality of health and they are needed for good health.
They cut down eating time because of the time it takes to eat them -- this helps us not to overeat.
They are generally low to moderate source of fat -- the type of fat is beneficial to our bodies. The low fat profile helps our intake to fall within recommended guidelines for fat. Green vegetables are also low in simple sugars.
Green vegetables make a great addition to the diet. Studies have shown that by consuming 5 servings of fruits and vegetables or more, individuals can cut their risk of some cancers in half. Fruit and vegetable consumption is also associated with a reduction in other chronic diseases and obesity.

Hi Francis

Fresh vegetables are certainly much healthier than junk food. Effective tight framing here with good sharpness & superb density & lighting contrasts. A good exposure on the highlights with no oe. Have a nice weekend! Tfs!

Very nice. I can only named few of them...the rest just strange for me...

Hello Francis,
My staple food. Thank you for a beautiful image and informative note which, with my vegan eating style, I completely agree with. They are all great favourites and you have worked up a good appetite here. Well done my friend.

Bonjour Francis Xavier
Après dégustation visuelle de tous ces mets du Monde entier, je prendrais bien un peu de légumes......
Ceux ci devraient faire amplement mon régal, ils sont beaux, appétissants, avec de jolies couleurs et brillants à souhait....
Belle composition, très naturelle, avec une belle gestion de la lumière, parfaite de détails....
A l'heure de passer à table, bon appétit Francis Xavier...

Being a vegetarian, I enjoy capturing vegetables and fruits and on the other hand do enjoy their pictures too, Francis!

A lovely shot with amazing colors and contrasts.
The POV is excellent, and DOF is well handled.
I like the contrast between the cauliflower and the intense red tomato.
Well caught exposure and balanced light too.

A wonderful entry to Friday's theme!

Kind regards,

Hi Francis

Hi Francis.

very nice composition, looks like its harvest festival. Th eangle of light shows us good colouration, the textures to the cauliflower stands out well. The odd red tomatoe sits well in a sea of green, the top right could have done with a slight crop though. tfs

stv :o))

Bonsoir Francis Xavier,

Ravissantes fraicheur, couleurs et présentation ordonnée.
Bonne gestion de la lumière et mini contraste.
Un bonheur végétal joliment mis en image.
Très bien vu aussi avec les belles rondeurs du fruit qu'est la tomate. TFS


Francis Xavier

Vegetables are healthy food, so true.
The pov is well thought out, this is a good choice to present the vegetables with their vivid colors.
I like the texture of baskets that goes well with the whole composition well balanced.
Very nice and dietary entry to the Food theme.
My best regards.

HI Francis, with these healthy colorful vegies we can indulge on some of the tempting sweets on the Gallery !!
A very nice entry to the Theme - Broad beans, cauliflower, artichokes, round zucchinis (?)tomato, broccoli-
Kind regards, thanks for sharing Monika

An unusual but very appropriate crop for this shot of familiar and less familiar vegetables. The red and white provide nice areas of contrast.

Dear Francis,
The red tomato made this photo a success. I like the creative composition, color, sharpness & focus, TFS

salam Francis,
You have made an excellent shot from an ordinary daily life subject. The slender frame you have chosen has eliminated all the things arround and the sight is focused on a collection of healthy green vegetables. What i like most, except the quality that is perfect, is your PoV. All vegetables semm like being falling on the ground, for they all have their heads twards the earth.
It's a nice contribution in the Friday theme. TFS.
