Why eat veggies & Fruits?

Updated: Feb 26, 2019

Bought these lovely veggies and fruits today. Im bananas about simple lunches that just require prep & baking😁😂 Eating a rainbow diet allows you to gain alot of different nutrients!

Did you know? 1 Bell pepper contains more vitamin C than 1 orange 🍊! 🍄White mushrooms are packed with B vitamins

Green beans can be a means of multivitamins! No seriously, it contains vitamin A,B, C, E and K. Calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium.

The question is how much of these foods do we need to eat to gain the DAILY RECOMMENDED values so we dont become deficient ?

A simplistic answer: In line with the new Canadian food guide atleast half a plate of veggies is required to meet your vitamin and mineral needs.

If you suffer from a condition you may need more OR less. Refer to your health care provider.
