Why it's important to eat your veggies

Updated: Jan 3



Did you know that most Australian's don't eat enough vegetables per day and that over 60% of Australian's are overweight or obese?


Vegetables are super important because they:

  1. infuse your body with nutrients

  2. assist with weight loss

  3. improve your energy levels, clarity of mind and mood.

  4. contain an abundance of nutrients, antioxidants, enzymes and soluble fibre

  5. have a protective effect on the body from a wide range of diseases and cancers.

It is recommended that you eat 5 serves of vegetables per day which includes having a variety of vegetables and colours.


Ideally half of your plate should include vegetables with some fruit.


If you are not eating the recommended 5 serves a day start by increasing your intake by 1 serve at a time until you get to 5 serves per day.


You could also start adding more vegetables to your lunches and dinners, snacking on veggie sticks or having a green smoothie or juice which will give you 2-3 serves not to mention a boost in nutrients and energy!
