The Power of Eating Your Fresh Vegetables

Eating salad keeps you healthy

Nature's most powerful medicine, fruits and vegetables, are low in calories, high in complex carbohydrates, contain no cholesterol and almost no fat. They are rich sources of a variety of nutrients, including vitamins, trace minerals, and dietary fibre, and many other classes of antioxidants and phytochemicals. These nutrients may be your best weapon against age-related disease. A body of scientific research provides compelling evidence that a diet high in vegetables and fruits may reduce the risk of many diseases. Aim to include 5-10 servings of antioxidant rich vegetables and fruits each day by making bright colour and dark green choices.
