The nutritionists and dietitians over at Nutritional Weight & Wellness often talk about the importance of vegetables, with good reason. The benefits are amazing! Vegetables help you detox your body of toxic estrogens (both men and women have toxic estrogens) and balance hormones, and they reduce your risk of developing cancer and your risk of stroke. This is in addition to helping establish better gut health, aiding with weight loss, preventing high blood pressure and improving blood sugar.
They’ve written articles about it (like this one: How to Finally Eat More Veggies… And Enjoy It!), they’ve talked about it on the weekly podcast and radio show Dishing Up Nutrition (like this episode with a chef on How to Use Farmer’s Market Vegetables), and they’ve written recipes to inspire you in actually getting them on your plate (how about this Green Veggie Dip for those in-season raw goodies?!).
To get all of those vitamins and minerals that provide the benefits of better gut health, balancing hormones, reducing cancer risk, vibrant energy, better moods, and all the other things, how many servings should we be eating? Five to nine cups per day.
Now, we know you’re busy. If you’re not used to getting that many cups in regularly, nine can feel like a far stretch. A solution for getting in more veggie nutrients when you’re on the go (or maybe your kiddos are a little picky!) is to use a great shortcut to more servings of veggies and fruits, NutriKey’s Key Greens & Fruits.
