Quick fresh salad or smoothie for energy boost. I am writing an article for a fresh fruit and vegetable stand. Thanks, Susan
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.
