Default Rate your veggies

OK, I'm re-dedicating myself to eating clean, unprocessed food, including more veggies. I really have a hard time eating what most people consider to be the "good" vegetables.

Most of the non meat, non grain, non dairy foods (I hesitate to call them vegetables) I eat are:
Potatoes
Corn
Mushrooms
Black Beans
Romaine Lettuce
Tomatoes (made into sauces, etc - I can't stand whole tomatoes)

I realize that most of these don't have a lot of real nutritional value so I'd like to supplement these with some better choices. On a scale of 1-10 how would the above rate.

THEN, how would you rate things like:
Artichokes
Squash
Spinach
Broccoli
Cauliflower

I just don't want to bother making myself eat squash & broccoli if mushrooms & romaine are just as good...

Thanks Glory, that site is exactly the kind of thing I was looking for...

I only listed things that I knew I could force myself to worry down. I'm extrememly "veggie challenged."
