Ranking Vegetables by How Healthy They Are

You should eat more vegetables, but all vegetables are not equal. The number one vegetable in the American diet is French fries, made of white potatoes, which rank rather low in comparison to other veggies. You might try passing off corn as a vegetable, or the iceberg lettuce in your sandwich. Not only is that crunchy leaf a negligible amount, it's also the least nutritious of the many kinds of lettuce. If you're looking for a bigger nutrient punch in your diet, check out how vegetables rank against each other. You need a variety, but leaning more toward the top of the list could be an easy goal fo rate new year. Read the rankings and the reasoning at Mel magazine. -via Digg

Great! I LOVE asparagus. And sweet potatoes, and Brussels sprouts, and spinach (my classmates thought I was weird - I have loved spinach since I was small!), and broccoli. Other faves I am glad to see on this list include mushrooms and tomatoes.
