Eat Your Veggies!

"Eat your veggies!" We hear or say that often. Why? Today via @floralandpineco we're sharing FOUR solid reasons to love your vegetables:

1. Prevent disease.
Eating your veggies can help prevent the risk of many diseases such as heart disease, all types of cancers, diabetes, obesity, dementia, alziemer’s, depression and other mental disturbances, reduce aches and pains, and much more. Vegetables contain many protective ingredients such as antioxidants, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and fibre, that can all help ward off disease and keep the cells and organs in your body healthier. Hello!
2. Get your dose of vitamins and minerals.
One of the ways veggies help prevent disease is through providing vitamins and minerals because these are essential to good health. We NEED vitamins and minerals to drive many of the metabolic processes in our bodies.
3. Generate energy.
Vegetables are a great source of healthy carbohydrates and carbohydrates help provide your body and brain with energy. Unlike heavy carbs like grains, eating a wide variety of veggies can still fuel the engines without making you feel bloated. Feeling vibrant and alive in life is definitely one my goals!
4. Promote digestive health.
Eating your vegetables helps promote a healthy bowel and keeps you regular! Did you know that your gastrointestinal tract is one of the largest immune organs in your body? Veggies can help you maintain the health of your digestive system naturally!
