At this point, most of us are probably pretty aware that vegetables are an important part of our daily diet. But ask us why it’s important and we might not know how to answer. Wonder no more because the CDC has a fantastic article that covers the benefits of both fruits and vegetables. The article tells you how many fruits and vegetables you should be eating each day with a handy Fruit and Vegetable Calculator. It also tells you how to use fruits and vegetables to help manage your weight. Score!
If you’re tired of eating the same vegetables every day, try broadening your selection by checking out this Vegetables List. Or try diversifying the way you cook vegetables (raw, grilled, steamed, etc.)
