Veg-out on Veggies!

The Harvard School of Public Health states:

It’s hard to argue with the health benefits of a diet rich in vegetables and fruits: Lower blood pressure; reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, and probably some cancers; lower risk of eye and digestive problems; and a mellowing effect on blood sugar that can help keep appetite in check.”

The recommended serving of fruits and vegetables each day is 2-3. It’s always great to eat a handful of carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, or snap peas; however, it doesn’t hurt to spice it up when it comes to how your vegetables come prepared. Raw and steamed veggies are always the easiest, but try changing it up a bit and check out this great website with some really tasty vegetable dish recipes so that you can get in your daily servings of those nutritious and delicious vegetables.
