I do most of my food shopping on line, but when
I want specific fresh products I go myself to check
and then buy.
I am a flesh eater and I firmly believe we must eat
protein with every meal.
But I do recognize that we also need to include a colourful
variety of fruits and vegetables in our daily diets.
Vegetables and fruits give our body the nutrients it
needs to maintain itself and be healthy.
They are very rich sources of fibre, vitamins, minerals,
enzymes and phytochemicals to fight diseases, like:
diabetes, high blood pressure, eye problems, urinary tract
problems, heart, brain, bones and immune system problems.
They also have less calories so we can maintain a healthy
weight more easily.
We need a minimum of five portions of vegetables and fruits
daily, but the more we can eat the better.
This equals to: 5 x 80gr = 400gr = 14oz on a daily basis.
