What can you gain?

We aren't talking about gaining weight, we're talking about health benefits. My hope today is that you will get excited about what we can do to improve our health simply through nutrition - no drugs or miracle pills required!
  • Fruits and vegetables are rich sources of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that can improve health, energy level, and general well being.
  • People who eat larger portions of fruits and vegetables have a decreased risk of chronic diseases such as stroke, type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, and possibly heart disease and high blood pressure.
  • Fruits and vegetables contain healthy antioxidants and phytochemicals.
  • Fruits and vegetables are good food choices to assist in losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight because they are low in calories but high in nutrients, fiber, and water to fill you up.
  • Diets high in fruits and vegetables can promote memory function and healthy aging.
  • Eating fruits and vegetables promotes strong bones and teeth and healthy vision.

So what are you eating today?
