The Importance of Fruits and Vegetables

11:53 AM
Eating a good diet is vital to staying healthy and maintaining a goal weight. A large part of a good diet is fruits and vegetables, which are also some of the most ignored foods in most people’s diets. If you do not eat fruits and vegetables every day, you will need to change your diet and include them more, through Xango smoothies and other simple means.


Reasons to Eat Them


Fruits and vegetables carry a lot of different vitamins and minerals that are necessary for the health of the body and can even help people live longer. They can even protect against some cancers and diseases, and help them go away as well. They contain fiber, which helps keep the body’s digestive system working regularly. Vitamins help the growth of organs in the body, including the skin. Fruits and vegetables can even lower blood pressure and risk of stroke, keeping the heart healthy. They do not contain much fat and calories, but are filling, so they are good to eat if you're trying to maintain or lose weight. When a late night snack is needed, fruits and vegetables are perfect because they will fill you up without turning into fat later on.

How to Eat More of Them


Xango smoothies are a great way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet, especially if you do not enjoy the taste of them. Smoothies will contain all the vitamins and minerals you need without needing much effort. You should also try to include fruits and vegetables into every meal you eat, and trade out other snacks for a snack with something healthy. Keep your fruits on the counter where you can see them, and always have them handy. Sometimes half the battle is just making the fruit available to yourself. This way, when you need a snack or are on your way out the door, you can grab an apple or a banana and eat it on your way. Keep it interesting for yourself by buying new fruits and vegetables whenever you can. This way, you will not end up eating the same things every day.

  6. Fruits and vegetables are important in everyone's diet. I just don't know how some of my friends say that they are healthy even when they totally don't eat them. In fact, they have relatives that are now aged over 90 and still healthy without fruits and vegetable intake.

  18. Fruit and veggies is the way of life if you want to live healthy. People must intake 3-5 servings of fruits and raw veggies everyday. Raw because once cooked, a large percentage of vitamins and minerals vanishes. =)
