Well, as we grew older, many of us understood the importance of consuming vegetables and how they benefit our health in the long run.
However, there are still many people out there who avoid eating vegetables and this habit can give them serious nutritional deficiencies.
While it is a fact that meat contains a high amount of protein and other nutrients, it is also true that vegetables are also rich in various nutrients.
