An apple a day keeps the doctor away is how the saying goes… Having a healthy balanced diet is important especially one that is rich in fruit and vegetables.
Apples actually are really good for you they contain antioxidants which may actually help lower the chance of you developing diabetes and asthma. Plus an apple is full of vitamins that lie just below the skin.
Eating different colours of fruit and vegetables is important as different colours contain different types of nutrients.
I know people who become suddenly ill and then begin eating different types of fruit and vegetables as in the hope of magically stopping or turning back the clock on the illness they face. As with any good habit it’s never too late to begin. However with your health in my opinion the earlier you start the better.
My Grandad had a very unwell heart; he grew up in a time when the knowledge and information wasn’t as readily available later fighting in World War Two and subjected to rationings. My Grandad in his later years made beautiful homemade dishes for both himself and his lovely wife my Grandma however my dad said that he neglected to eat much fruit.
Eating fruit and vegetables’ doesn’t have to be expensive, time consuming or boring. My husband and I enjoy lots of different fresh fruit and vegetables however they can also be enjoyed frozen and tinned.
Working fruit and vegetables into your diet doesn’t have to be inconvenient and boring if you go to the supermarket especially Asian supermarkets you can buy many unusual varieties to try and discover a new healthy and tasty fruit or vegetable that you may enjoy.
I do enjoy chocolate however nothing really is as enjoyable as a tasty juicy piece of fruit.
Fruit and vegetables have always been an essential part of my diet however this year 2014 I have become more aware of the importance and have been trying to eat at least one apple a day on top of all my other fruit and vegetables I normally eat.
