Why do we need to eat fruits & vegetables?
Fruits and vegetables are natural nutrient powerhouses! They contain the vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and fiber needed to power the billions of chemical reactions our body needs every second of the day. Fruits and veggies contain the information our bodies need to allow them to keep working the way they were meant to and they are also amazing sources of energy to help fuel your every move!
It’s recommended to eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day but we should really be eating more like 8-13 portions of high quality fruits and veggies for optimal wellness.
