Question
What are some of the health benefits for including fresh fruit and vegetables in your daily diet? Examples of health benefits in eating fresh melons,cherries, apples tomatoes, avocados, onions. Quick fresh salad or smoothie for energy boost.  I am writing an article for a fresh fruit and vegetable stand.  Thanks, Susan

Answer
Fruits and vegetables are great sources of vitamins and minerals.  In addition, by eating fresh fruits and vegetables a person gets a wide range of phytochemicals such as lycopene for prostate health and lutein for healthy eyes.

Fruits and vegetables supply carbohydrates to give the body energy.  They also provide a good source of fiber which can help lower one's cholesterol level.

Avocados are an excellent source of "good" fats and apples are a great way to get pectin, another important nutrient.

By "eating a rainbow" of colorful fruits and vegetables every day, a person can make sure that they get all the healthy benefits of these tasty treats.

Thank you for your question, Susan.  I hope that my answer was helpful.
