Why eat MORE fruits and veggies?

I read this article on the top ten reasons to eat more fruits and veges. Thought I would share:

10. Color & Texture: Fruits and veggies add
color, texture … and appeal … to your plate.

9. Convenience: Nutritious in any form -
fresh, frozen, canned, dried and 100% juice, so they’re ready when you are!

8. Fiber: Fruits and veggies provide
fiber that helps fill you up and keeps your digestive system happy.

7. Low in Calories: Fruits and veggies are naturally
low in calories.

6. May Reduce Disease Risk: Eating plenty of fruits and veggies may help reduce the risk of many diseases, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and some cancers.

5. Vitamins & Minerals: Fruits and veggies are rich in
vitamins and minerals that help you feel healthy and energized.

4. Variety: Fruits and veggies are available in an almost infinite variety…there’s always something new to try!

3. Quick, Natural Snack: Fruits and veggies are nature’s treat and easy to grab for a snack.

2. Fun to Eat!: Some crunch, some squirt, some you peel … some you don’t, and some grow right in your own backyard!

1. Taste Great!
