Figure 3. The Vegetables group is divided into five subgroups – dark green (e.g., broccoli, spinach), starchy (e.g., corn, potatoes), red and orange (e.g., tomatoes, carrots), beans and peas (e.g., black beans, kidney beans), and other (e.g., cucumbers, asparagus). Make sure to eat vegetables from all of these groups to get different nutrients.
