Do you eat enough fruits and vegetables? According to the CDC most of us aren’t getting the proper amounts of fruits and vegetables in our diets. A study from the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health found that eating seven serving of fruits and vegetables a day led to a 42 percent lower risk of death during the study period, a 25 percent reduction in deaths from cancer, and a 31 percent dip in deaths from heart disease and stroke. It’s not always easy to fit in the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables in our daily routine, but here are a few easy ways to fit them in:
- Keep them visible so you will be more likely to grab them when in a hurry.
- Add a few slices of banana or a few berries to your breakfast cereal or oatmeal.
- Make smoothies out of your favorite fruits and vegetables.
- Dried fruits are great as toppings.
- Frozen fruits and vegetables are just as nutritious and they are always available.
