Keep Yourself Healthy By Eating More Fruits And Veggies
Want to help keep your body running smoothly? Eat more vegetables and fruits! The phytonutrients and antioxidants in produce help counter oxidative stress, boost your immune system and decrease your risk of illness. Luckily, produce doesn’t have to break the bank – and its fiber naturally fills you up to keep your hunger down!
The best source of antioxidant vitamins and minerals is a wholesome, varied diet – concentrate on eating plenty of fresh (preferably organic, if it fits your budget) fruits, vegetables and nuts. After dinner, if you need to nibble, try fruit and nuts instead of a traditional, calorie-laden dessert. If that will not suffice, a square of dark chocolate should hit the spot and also provide health benefits.
If you need additional nutritional support from proteins and fats, consider canned wild-caught fish, free range eggs or bulk nuts which should all be reasonably priced and filling.
