Get Your Nutrients from vegetables

Vegetables important in your life

vegetables-clip-artI love vegetables, which probably is not a shock getting from a nutritionist. While I want everybody else felt the same, the fact is there are some individuals who just don’t like them. That’s why I was glad when my publisher found Undercover Vegetables last month at the Fancy Food Show.

Undercover Vegetables is an all-purpose seasoning which claims to provide 8 veggies plus 20 % of your daily dose of vitamins A, C, and E, and also selenium in 1 1/4-teaspoon serving. From the ingredient tag, I can tell you that the “ten vegetables” come from whole-vegetable concentrates and extracts of onion, broccoli,  sprouts, tomato, carrot, spinach, kale, and Brussels sprouts. So is it is really an unbelieveable way to spread some kale into your diet plan, or very good to be true?

I’m not so confident how much of the 20 % of your vitamins comes from real vegetables or from the Vegetable Vitamin™ Mixture of beta carotene (vitamin A), ascorbic acid (vitamin C), d-alpha tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), and sodium selenite (selenium). Sea salt is also on the ingredient list, giving 120mg sodium per serving.

I think, I don’t see any downside of by using this seasoning if you like the taste of it and stick to the 1 serving. In my mind, it can behave as a safety net for your diet plan, just like a multivitamin pill, and it has Zero calories. If you fall off the healthy eating wagon for a entire day, a sprinkle of Undercover Vegetables can immediately give you some extra vitamins. However, more would not be much better. I’d be concerned about the sodium content increasing as well as vitamin A since high levels of A can be harmful to the fetus development in expectant women.

The company suggests using the seasoning on meals like pizza, tomato sauce, taco meat, and chicken nuggets, which is definitely an attempt to market it as “kid-friendly.” I’ve always been a believer that many of us should encourage our little ones to eat actual veggies instead of hiding them, and so I guess after the day, Personally I think the same way with grown-ups.
