    Are all green colored vegetables good for health?

    Well, most are. But I wouldn't eat rhubarb leaves on a bet.

    I think all green vegetables offer some health benefits and nutrition, although some definitely have more nutritional benefits than others. The only green vegetable I can think of that is nutritionally deficient is iceberg letter, which does not contain many nutrients. Generally, the darker green a vegetable is, the more healthy it is for you.
    Broccoli is a good source of Vitamins A & C, fibre, lutein, beta carotene, folic acid and calcium.
    Romaine lettuce is a source of fiber, Vitamins A, B1,B2 and C and folic acid.
    Spinach is a good source of iron, Vitamins A, C and K, fiber, lutein, calcium, folic acid.
    Kale provides iron, calcium, Vitamin K and folic acid.
    Brussel sprouts are good for Vitamins A and C, calcium, fiber, folic acid and potassium.
    Green peas provide folic acid, Vitamins A, C and K and B complex vitamins.
    Green beans contain fiber, protein, folic acid iron, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium.
    Celery provides fiber, and some vitamins A, C, B6 and K.

    Hmmm, that's a pretty broad question. The broad answer is....Yes.

    Specific answers can deal your individual health needs. When I go in to donate blood I eat a lot of dark green leafy vegetables for the iron like spinach.

    When I feel a cold coming on I eat bell peppers for the vitamin C.

    And I always eat onions 'cause of the anti-oxidants.

    There are lots of sites that provide nutritional information on different vegetables. I also recommend reading 'Eat Right for Your Type' as a dietary reference.

    raw and fresh all green veggies are healthy yes.  Some are less nutritious when canned for long periods or overcooked - but in a general sense yes green vegetables are all healthy for you in one way or another.
