Vegetable Ranking

How do you rank vegetables? It’s a bit like ranking the cuteness of three-year-olds in a preschool class. Not easy.

Check out this ranking of 73 veggies. As expected, leafy greens and dark orange veggies lead the pack, but that’s no reason to leave the mushrooms out of your sauté or the cucumber out of your salad. If you don’t like the superstars, ignore the rankings and eat your faves!

I take the medication called Coumadin and I love Kale, my heart doctor told me that it was high in Vitamin K and I’m not to eat that veggie any longer, it will cause my readings to flucuate too much. Is there another veggie I can eat that is alot like Kale?

Thank you! I wonder how bitter melon compares.

As a children’s nutrition education program, Veggie U appreciates being able to share this great resource with our followers. Can you explain what the numerical “score” represents or how it was derived? Thanks!

Great tool to have in your kitchen, rounding out meals with vegetables is what it’s all about.

I may be slow this morning, but is there a key that says what the different dots mean? (i.e – is a solid green dot better that a green dot with a white cross?)
