30 Reasons to Eat More Fruits and Veggies!
Fruits and vegetables are some of the most nutrient-dense foods around.
They are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, enzymes, and vitamins and
minerals. Studies show that populations who eat the most fruits and veggies
have the lowest rates of disease overall. Best of all they are low in
calories and add variety, color, and texture to the diet. Here are many
examples of just why:
Phytochemicals are the plant chemicals that produce diverse colors in
fruits and vegetables, which act as antioxidants in the body.
Phytochemicals also prevent serious illnesses. Cauliflower and brussels
sprouts all contain phytochemicals that prevent cancer. The low-fat content
in most fruits and vegetables maintain cholesterol levels, which reduces
the risk of cardiovascular disease.
A diet rich in fruits and vegetables lowers the risk of chronic diseases
such as diabetes and heart disease. Some vitamin or mineral deficiencies
lead to serious illnesses.
The low-fat content in most fruits and vegetables maintain cholesterol
levels, which reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Fruits and vegetables have a low Glycemic Index (GI) due to their high
content of fiber.
Eating fruits and veggies makes us feel fuller for longer when we eat
fruits and vegetables because the glucose is released into the body slowly,
unlike foods that make us hungry again quickly. Broccoli and jalapeno
peppers support weight loss by increasing metabolism.
Most fruits function as natural laxatives, helping to regulate your body's
digestive process. They provide roughage and fiber that is important in
helping your body get rid of wastes.
Phytonutrients are extremely powerful antioxidants that help protect your
body against cancer-causing free radicals and may slow down some of the
effects of aging.
Not surprisingly, studies have shown that a diet high in fruit can help
prevent many of the symptoms of diseases like Alzheimer's disease and other
deteriorating conditions of the brain.

Unlike drugs, fruit and veggie nutrients don't have a rapid effect. The
business of nutrition is to build better cells and this process takes time,
waiting on nature to turn over body cells. A blood cell lasts 60-120 days,
so in three to four months your whole blood supply is completely replaced.
Once you start feeding it better, your body will grow new, improved cells.
It is proven that you can change your life by the food that you eat.
