    I'm not sure I understand your question about nutrition.

    It's a good idea to eat vegetables and to drink several glasses of water a day.

    I'm not sure I understand either. There is one prepositional phrase in your example "of nutrients: carbohydrates...and vitamins." This phrase acts as a modifier (adjective) of the noun "groups". :wink:
