To be healthy, you need to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. And we have a wide variety of fruits and vegetables from around the world. It’s just smart eating.
In fact, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, fruits and vegetables are sources of many vitamins, minerals and other natural substances that may help protect you from chronic diseases. Eating fruits and vegetables of different colors gives your body a wide range of nutrients, including fiber, folate, potassium and vitamins A and C.
In addition, healthy diets rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Most fruits and vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories and are filling.
In fact, believe or not, eating more fruits and vegetables just might make you more attractive. Eating a healthy diet rich in fruit and vegetables gives you a healthier glow than the sun thanks to carotenoids – antioxidants that help soak up damaging compounds produced by stress and combating disease. That’s according to a study by the Perception Lab of the University of Nottingham.
