Fruits and Veggies – More Matters
September is National “Fruit and Veggies – More Matters” Month and we at EnivaHealth know that more does matter! Most likely you’ve heard many times you should “eat your fruits and veggies” – you actually should be eating 7 to 11 servings per day — but what’s the real reason these two food groups ought to be the most prominent component of your diet? Here’s our list of why you should be eating even more fruits and vegetables!
Why are They Good For You?
First, fruits and vegetables are naturally low in calories, may help lower the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and some cancers. In addition, they have an extremely high potency of vitamins and minerals to keep you healthy and energized. According to Harvard School of Public Health, ensuring that you are eating fruits and vegetables is important, but so is the variety that you consume. No single fruit or vegetable provides all the nutrients that your body needs, and therefore it’s extremely important to eat many different ones instead of just one color and type. So, which ones should you focus on?
There Really Are “Superfoods”
There really are “superfoods” – it’s not just hype. Berries, for example, are an excellent source of antioxidants that help neutralize free radical damage in the body. Apples on the other hand provide an excellent source of fiber, while bananas are loaded with potassium significantly supporting normal blood pressure. Cantaloupes and oranges introduce vitamins E and C into your body, while also keeping your skin looking young and smooth. And what about vegetables? Vegetables are your main source of vitamins and minerals, and most often, the greener and redder the better! Spinach, Asparagus, Green Beans, Broccoli, Tomatoes, Beets, even Pumpkin are all excellent ways of gaining the phytonutrient-rich compounds your body needs. As a general tip, keep your fruits and veggies in an easy-to-get-to place, already cut up, that way you’ll reach for them before you grab the cream pie on the shelf below. Try to incorporate pureed veggies and fruits into breads, soups, hot dishes and casseroles – most times you won’t even notice they’re there. And of course, the ever-popular smoothies are a great way to add in more fruits and veggies – yes, even kale can work in a smoothie!
