Chart of how many calories in vegetables.

When counting calories, you need to know the amount of calories in each individual food source that you intend to consume. Vegetables are a good source of vitamins, minerals and fibre and are quite low in calories compared to other foods. On this web page we present a guide to how many calories vegetables contain.



Group of common vegetables. How Many Calories in Vegetables Table

If you roughly estimate that vegetables contain around 20 calories per serving you would be near the right amount. Saying this, there are some vegetables that actually are high in calorie count such as some bean varieties.

Because of room constraints of a web page, some of the lesser known vegetables have been omitted from the calorie chart below. Average serving amount is 100 grams unless otherwise stated. This is normally around a cup full of vegetables per serve.
