June is National Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month. What better way to celebrate than to load up on the fresh goodies and do something great for your body.
Fresh fruits and vegetables come packed with all the good vitamins and antioxidants that your body craves. Besides, isn’t it refreshing to eat something that is not processed? I believe there’s something of a primal joy in eating of the bounty of the earth. Consider these facts:
A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables can lower blood pressure
It can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers
Most are naturally low in fat and calories
Weekly goal: Get at least five servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day.
