To live vibrantly, health authority dietary guidelines recommend that we chew on 5 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit a day. But get this … according to the Australian Heart Foundation, nearly 95% of the population is not eating enough fruits and veggies!
Fruits and veggies nourish us with the vitamins and minerals our body needs, as well as being our main supplier of antioxidants which stop the inflammation which leads to diseases like heart disease, stroke, many cancers, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and antibiotic resistance, to name a few.
So start getting stuck into these powerhouses of nature and glow with health!
The VegPledge Challenge – For one week make sure you get a minimum serving of 5 vegetables and 2 fruits a day. You are welcome to share your plate with us through social media tagging #Vegpledge.
Are you up for it?
