How many veggies do you eat a day?
I eat 1+ kilograms of vegetables a day, with most of that intake occurring before dinner.
Well, eating a diversity of colourful foods can be an easy way to get a complete range of the vitamins and minerals your body needs to thrive.
Each colour in fruits and vegetables is caused by specific phytonutrients. It is these phytochemicals that give fruits and vegetables their vibrant colour and of course some of their healthy properties, with each different colour indicating an abundance of various nutrients.
What are some of the things the different colours do:
🍓Red fruits and vegetables help fight cancer, reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease and improve skin quality. 🍊Orange and yellow fruits and vegetables improve immune function, reduce the risk of heart disease and promote eye health. 🥦Green fruits and vegetables boost the immune system, help detoxify the body and restore energy and vitality. 🍆Blue and purple fruits and vegetables fight cancer and unwanted inflammation and help keep you young. 🥔White and brown fruits and vegetables protect against certain cancers, keep bones strong and are a heart healthy choice.
This mixed bean and vegetable stir-fry with pineapple, soy, lime, garlic sauce took all of 5 minutes to make. It was created with a few pantry essentials and a strange desire to empty the fridge.
So what was in it?
4 bean mix, pineapple, red cabbage, white cabbage, carrot, corn, jalapenos, red capsicum, red chili, red onion, baby spinach and a few scraps of shredded chicken with soy, pineapple juice, garlic, lime juice and salt and pepper for a little bit more of a kick.
