Are you eating enough Fruits & Vegetable each day?


Are you eating enough fruits and vegetables daily?
You should choose more vegetables and fruits in your daily meals. Go for color and variety—dark green, yellow, orange, and red.


It's hard to argue with the health benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables: 
- Lower blood pressure
- Reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, and probably some cancers
- Lower risk of eye and digestive problems
- A mellowing effect on blood sugar that can help keep appetite in check.  


Most people should aim for at least nine servings (at least 4½ cups) of vegetables and fruits a day, and potatoes don't count. Go for a variety of kinds and colors of produce, to give your body the mix of nutrients it needs. Best bets? Dark leafy greens, cooked tomatoes, and anything that's a rich yellow, orange, or red color.


Here are some tips for those who seldom eat fruits and vegatables.
1. Keep fruit out where you can see it (Dinning table, working desk, etc). That way you'll be more likely to eat it. Keep it out on the counter or in the front of the fridge.
2. Get some every meal, every day. Try filling half your plate with vegetables at each meal. Serving up salads, stir fry, or other vegetable-rich fare makes it easier to reach this goal. Bonus points if you can get some fruits and vegetables at snack time, too.
3. Explore the produce aisle and choose something new. Variety is the key to a healthy diet. Get out of a rut and try some new fruits and vegetables.
4. Bag the potatoes. Choose other vegetables that are packed with more nutrients and more slowly digested carbs.
5. Make it a meal. Try some new healthy recipes where vegetables take center stage, such as fruit salad which I shared on my blogpost before..
