The “Five a Day” Will Keep You #Healthy Throughout Your Life!

Many nutritionists and therapists have been recommended us to take at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day! However, some people thought it’s easier said than done, as up to 80 percent of the people normally take two to three portions a day, which is only a half of the minimal recommendation!

Did you know that fruits and vegetables are the main sources of vitamins and minerals? Those people who eat a lot of fruit and vegetables daily, is definitely have a lower risk of getting chronic diseases, such as the Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and various types of cancers!

Basically, you can gain the benefits of fruits and vegetables, regardless of the forms of preparation!

By the way, have a look on the following list. Here’s a simple menu, and hope it might give you some idea on how to prepare your “Five a Day” portions.

1. A glass of fresh orange juice or watermelon juice
2. A plate of low calories salad as lunch
3. A plate of broccoli and beans
4. Raw strawberries as dessert
5. A small pack of dried apricots/persimmon for teatime

You can modify the above menu and turns it with your favorite fruits/vegetables.
