Why eat vegetables every day?

The full answer is here. But it boils down to the fact that some vitamins are watter soluble and some are fat soluble. Your body can store fat soluble vitamins, but not water soluble ones. So you need to replace the water soluble vitamins every day to keep your body running optimally. Vegetables contain lots of waters soluble vitamins. So eat veggies every day.
