Are calories important to count when it comes to vegetables? I eat 1, 500 calories per day but they seem to run out on vegetable snacks

In brief: Yes...

Counting calories is an essential component if trying to lose weight or are struggling with weight maintenance.
Though weight management can be affected by many factors, calories-in vs. Calories-out are a crucial component. Calories from veges, though generally lower than those from meats and processed carbs should be counted. With experience you will be able to "eyeball" the correct amounts.
