Hey guys from A Dica do Dia! Today our Video Dica is going to talk about Vegetables in Portuguese.
In Brazil, we have a difference among Legumes and Vegetables. We call vegetables that in general have leaves and are green, such as lettuce, Verduras. The Verduras are low calorie foods. The Legumes are salty foods, they can be cereals and they have more calories than the verduras, such as potatoes and carrots.
