Health Benefits of Vegetables
Vegetarian diets include a thorough consideration of which vegetables you want to include in your diet. It is also crucial that you prepare a proper diet plan to ensure that you can get all the required and desired nutrients for your body. Vegetables provide many benefits to your body as they prevent heart diseases, reduce cancer risk, prevent type-2 diabetes, lower blood pressure, strengthen bones, and decrease Asthma symptoms. So making it your daily diet or at least having it twice a week can help you maintain good health.

Origin of Cabbage and Kale
Cabbage was first grown along the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts in Europe. However, its origin can also be associated with Greece, where flat-leaved and curly-leaved Cabbage was found during the 4th Century BC. On the other hand, the start of Kale cultivation can be traced back to the beginning of 2000 BCE in Asia and the Eastern Mediterranean.
