Hey folks, I hope you’re all well.

I just posted this on my FB page and thought it would make a nice little introduction for a follow up blog post as I feel EVERYONE can benefit from this information 🙂

I’ll first start by saying, vegetables are filled with fiber, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and help to maintain a balanced diet.

Here are some benefits that you “may” be missing out on if your diet isn’t balanced with vegetables:

Fiber = Help with bowel movement. You may be constipated due to a lack of fiber.

Vitamins = The ability to prevent and treat various diseases including heart problems, high cholesterol levels, eye disorders, and skin disorders.

Minerals = Helps with proper functioning of the body. Most of the minerals aid in body metabolism, water balance, and bone health, but they can participate in hundreds of other small ways to effectively boost health as well.

AntiOxidants = Effective in preventing a number of age-related diseases. Clears the body of toxins and free radicals.

Today I’m just scratching the surface to help build a foundation of knowledge for those of you who don’t know this stuff or for those of you who could use a small reminder 😉

As today is just the introduction, I will expand further when I get some more time and list some vegetables and recipes 😀

Keep learning, Keep reading and Keep researching as:

“Knowledge is the key that will set us free”
