Fruits or Veggies?

February 20, 2014

You don't have to choose between fruit and vegetables, they both have vital roles in your healthy diet! Eating a variety of both fruit and veggies is by far the best approach for getting the most out of your nutritional dollar. Fruit usually provides the most soluble fiber which will help lower your cholesterol levels. Both food groups pack a wide variety of both vitamins and minerals, but vegetables supply more vitamins, calcium and phytochemicals. Various studies have linked both fruit and vegetables to a reduced risk of high blood pressure and coronary heart disease, but it looks like vegetables pack the most protection against cancer! It really depends on what health benefit you'er after, but with fruit and vegetables you really can't go wrong!
