VEGETABLES: The variety of vegetables is abundant and provides the widest range of suitable food combinations. Fresh salads are optimum nutritionally and combine very well with all grains, or nuts and seeds, or animal proteins or legumes.

  • Ideally, fresh vegetables and cooked vegetables are not the best combinations, especially when including the group of starchy vegetables (see charts).

  • Depending on personal taste, numerous combinations of fresh vegetables can be excellent. The taste and colors of vegetables enhances the appetite of any protein meal and combines very well.
