Fruits and vegetables are a great source of nutrients and vitamins, and most health advisers would recommend that you eat them both on a daily basis.

The reason fruit and veg are considered so good for us is because they help prevent several ailments and diseases -and provide us with a number of things that do our bodies good.

What's so great about fruit and vegetables?

I remember my parents constantly telling me to eat more fruit and vegetables - and it's only recently that I've fully understood why.

If you look into it, so many of the things that our bodies need can be found in fruits or vegetables.

These include:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Fibers
  • Nutrients
  • Natural sugars
What are the benefits of eating fruit and vegetables?

The sugars in fruit and veg can be used as energy by the body, and fiber helps digestion.

Vitamins, nutrients, and minerals all help to protect us from disease and chronic illness - and foods like blueberries, broccoli and tomatoes contain so many beneficial ingredients that they are commonly known as 'superfoods'.

Vegetables and fruits can help us to do everything from fighting the common cold, through to reducing the risk of conditions like cancer or cardio-vascular disease.

If you care about your body, I'd recommend getting as many fruits and vegetables into your diet as possible.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are generally rich in vitamins and minerals but if we cook or fry vegetables and eat they will lose all good things in them.

Also fruits are good source of fibre which improves digestion, and anti-oxidants will keep you away from illness. So have some fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.

Another reason why you should eat fruits and vegetables other than what has been stated is that for the amount of satiety most of them provide, they are quite low in calories.

Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots etc... All do a great job in filling your stomach up with very few calories, allowing you to more easily hit your maintenance level calorie intake without going over it.

Fruits like apples and pears also are quite filling and low in calories...they also are a good alternative to sugary junk food and can help you deal with your sweet tooth in a way which is better for your body.
