Food is important because it keeps us going by providing our bodies with all the needed nutrients and energy.

When you take vegetables, they help your stomach stay full thus you find that you will be able to control some of your cravings. There are some people who do not like eating vegetables but there are ways that they can do this.
For example, when taking your favorite food, you can include a little amount of the vegetable you do not like and add a little of it in your food. Start with small amounts so that you do not feel the taste of vegetables only. When you find that you can still eat your food with the vegetables in it, you should add more amounts as time goes by until you find that you are able to eat the vegetables on their own.
During exercise, vegetables give the body with enough energy thus you are able to exercise for longer hours. It also provides fiber, which helps a lot during digestion because it helps improve the digestion process.
When you go to the grocer to buy vegetables like spinach, the color should be able to tell you whether they are fresh or not. You should also check the firmness. When a vegetable is fresh, it does not bend when you hold it upright.
Vegetables that are not fresh have a pale color and they do not smell good. Fresh spinach has their own smell, fresh broccoli has its own smell when fresh so make sure that you smell vegetables before buying to make sure that they are fresh.
