Eating plenty of vegetables may be one of the simplest ways to improve health and well-being. They provide energy, vitamins, minerals and fibre and additional health benefits from phytonutrients. Vegetables are also naturally low in fat, salt and sugar, making them an excellent food choice. Starchy vegetables such as potatoes, yams and sweet corn contain higher levels of carbohydrates and are higher in energy (kilojoules) because of their carbohydrate content. Vegetables lose a lot of their nutritional value when cooked so it’s best to eat them in their original form as far as possible or at least cook them the least degree that you can.
Red rice poha is also rich in fibre, carbohydrates and iron. It’s a great ingredient to add to a meal to give the feeling of satiety along with nutrients.
