Fruits and vegetables are loaded with nutrients. Each can offer very different benefits so you want to eat a rainbow, as they say. A colorful mix of fruits and vegetables will satisfy more of what your body craves, providing the healthiest results. Plus, they just taste good and summertime is the perfect time to pop some berries in the freezer so you can pop them right in your mouth for a refreshing snack or barbecue up some savory snacks, like beautiful skewered veggies that get sweeter as they grill.
Fruits and vegetables definitely help maintain overall health and body function. They are chock-full of antioxidants which are great for your skin; their fiber can make you feel fuller so that you don’t overeat; some can deliciously replace carbs – like cauliflower rice and zucchini noodles; they may even improve your cardiovascular system and ward off cancer; but let’s talk specifics, shall we?
For instance…lemons aid in digestion; honeydews can help keep you hydrated and prevent cramps; asparagus are full of amino acids which get rid of excess water that causes bloating; the potassium in bananas can regulate blood pressure and boost energy; peaches are peachy for protection against UV rays; beets, which are an excellent source of iron can improve stamina; chili peppers and mangoes help fight inflammation, grapes are great for your kidneys and blood; carrots can improve eyesight and promote colon health, mushrooms can boost your immune system. Plus, each one of these fruits and vegetables offers even more benefits than what is mentioned.
I could go on and on because there is not a fruit or vegetable without some sort of value; and speaking of value, you can get affordable, fresh fruits and vegetables at any convenient Perrine’s Produce location.
