A diet high in fruits and vegetables can help lower your blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease. Not to mention, it might be able to lower the risk of digestive problems while having a positive effect on blood sugar to make you feel fuller for longer. As if that’s not enough, many fruits and vegetables are high in fiber to aid gut health, too.
But you can’t get all of the necessary nutrients from just a single fruit or vegetable: You need variety. That’s why it’s important to try to make each meal as colorful as possible by loading it with different fruits and vegetables to give yourself a greater opportunity to hit your nutrient intake goals.
Unless you have your own private chef like Griffin, it can be hard to think about exactly which fruits and vegetables will taste great with each meal. Thankfully, Daily Harvest can do the hard work for you.
