Not all vegetables are created equal.

In a recent episode, Dr James quipped about his kids going for the most sugar-full veggies like carrots and snap peas and it sparked a listener to ask which veggies were in fact, “better”.

We intended to discuss the “better” foods in five categories but found just getting through veggies was a complete episode.

To give you some Cliff’s Notes, his “top tier” picks for the most nutrient dense veggies were broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, spinach, cabbage (especially purple) and kale.

Tier two? Peas, corn, carrots and okra.

Why? You’ll serve yourself to understand, so listen on to the episode.
