When it comes to the health realm, there are constant new things that we are told that we should and shouldn’t be doing. It can be exhausting to keep up with. One concept that has been fairly consistent is the importance of eating fruits and vegetables. Remember that old saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away?” It’s a good one to follow.
Make A Plan
We know that it’s important, so how do we do it? It is helpful to plan out what fruits and vegetables you can buy at the grocery store so you can have them on hand. If you have a difficult time remembering to eat at least one fruit and vegetable every day, write it down somewhere where you can see it. An example of this is printing off a meal plan online so you can put it in a place where you can see it, like your refrigerator. If you’re up for a challenge, you can even write or draw a meal plan up in a notebook that you use often. Just like planning out fruits and vegetables into your daily meals, it is essential to incorporate business transition planning when your business is about to go through a change.
Why Are Fruits And Vegetables Good For You?
Countless health benefits come from consistent healthy eating. Both vegetables and fruits have tons of vitamins and minerals that your body can benefit from. Most fruits and vegetables are high in fiber, potassium and vitamin c. Eating vegetables and fruits can lower your risk for diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, some forms of cancer and even some eye diseases.
Vegetables have healthy fats that can also help you feel satisfied. This is beneficial because feelings of hunger are more likely to be decreased and help you resist the temptation to eat foods with no nutritional value.
The most recent recommendation is that you eat 1.5-2 cups of fruit and 2-3 cups of vegetables on a daily basis. Be creative and find ways that you can incorporate this into different meals. Fruits and vegetables don’t have to be boring! The internet has countless ideas of ways to do this. Remember that most snacks are processed and that is not good for you or your children.
It can be really difficult to remember to eat fruits and vegetables every day–there’s already so much to remember and do in a day. Perhaps you can try eating a piece of fruit and/or vegetable in the morning before your day gets too busy so you don’t need to be worried about it throughout the day. That can help to alleviate some stress because you’ve already accomplished it for the day.
If you want to have positive results, start today to make a change, not tomorrow. Now that you’ve read this article, go eat a fruit or vegetable and start small to have change in your life.
