How many times have you been recommended to “eat your greens” or “eat the rainbow?”
The American diet could best be described as “beige,“ lacking incredibly important nutrients, extremely deficient in antioxidants, and important vitamins. As a team of Nutritionists and Registered Dietitians at Balanced Habits™ , we often suggest incorporating more greens into your diet. After all, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar, which can help keep your appetite in check. Pretty compelling reasons to incorporate these gifts from nature, wouldn’t you agree?
Although it is reported that on average, only one in ten Americans consume an adequate amount of fruits and vegetables each day. Whoa! For reference, it is recommended that the most effective combination of fruits and vegetables is two servings of fruits plus three servings of vegetables per day, for a total of five daily servings. Inherently we all know that vegetables, for example, are good for us.
So, what’s holding people back from eating them?
Many report that they taste bad, or they don’t know how to cook them, or they are too expensive. I mean….I guess. If we all cook (aka: murder) vegetables the “way our moms did.” (It all makes more sense now. Haha)
So, knowing these statistics and factoids, we recently discovered Balance of Nature, an ingenious company that has dedicated itself to packing all of the best components of many fruits and vegetables into a powder and capsule form. You can check out their philosophy and process here and thank us later for this hot tip.
Of course at Balanced Habits™, we will continue to encourage our family of health conscious individuals to enjoy a diet that includes more fruits and vegetables, little to no processed foods, and as “clean” as you can get it. However we live “in the real world” and aim to support the majority, not the minority. And in the real world, we know that people still might not like fruits and vegetables, or know how to cook them. That’s cool, and that’s why we found you a way to make up for some of your possible fruit and veggie deficiencies. As Experts in the field of Health & Nutrition, we know that “the more the better,” as far as the benefits of these nutrient rich dietary components go.
So, if you’re not planning to do more than “sprinkle in” more fruits and veggies into your daily diet, or if you already do and want to up your game, check out Balance of Nature. Our team at Balanced Habits™ is only just beginning to add their three main products (Fruits, Veggies, and Fiber & Spice) to our daily routines, but we already love them and think you will too.
