I swear, doing some research into the actual molecules that make veggies 'good' just leads me to believe that eating a minimum of 5 servings a day of vegetables can be more beneficial than most of the supplements on this site (except my dearly beloved choline, carnitine, creatine, CoQ10 and other vitamin-like compounds; which all seem to be in meats).

I really wonder if eating 2 servings of Brassica, 2 servings of the Onion family, 2 servings of Garlic, 2 servings of mushrooms, and 2 'other' plants (dark berries?) is as magical as I am imagining it right now. You pretty much have a high dose of everything.

For those wondering, just look around for Kaempferol, Apigenin, Quercetin, Pyrroloquinoline Quinone, Green tea Catechins, and Myricetin to see some of the benefits vegetables have to offer.
