When it comes to eating healthily, you should always try to incorporate a variety of vegetables. They contain a ton of vitamins and minerals that your body needs to stay healthy. For example, vegetables are full of vitamin C, which helps stave off illness-causing bacteria and viruses. Plus, they’re full of fiber that will keep you feeling fuller for longer periods of time.

How much Veggies Should You Eat?

What’s the right amount of veggies for you? The recommended amount is 5-7 servings a day.

A serving size is considered to be half a cup of cooked veggies or one cup of raw ones. If you don’t have time to cook, try freezing your vegetables and then cooking them later in the week.

Vegetables and Your Lifestyle

Partnering your vegetable-rich diet with an active lifestyle will definitely boost the impact it brings on your body. So get out and take a bit of exercise in the gym, do some yoga or anything that will keep your body moving.
