Getting five portions of fruit and vegetables is important to reach optimum health. I would also argue that your mind becomes free, and you feel better as a result of eating balanced meals too. In a sense, good food also impacts your mood, and train of thought(s).
Five a day doesn’t have to be difficult
I love technology, and I love using new gadgets — this includes a juicer / blender. I think this combination is good, and I hope you do too.
By using a juicer, you can easily get five portions a day in one glass. Does this mean that we might be able to get eight portions, or more, a day, instead of five? The more the merrier.
Bursting with flavour
By blending a banana, orange, handful of red and green grapes, a pear and an apple, I was guaranteed a fresh taste. But by taking full advantage of these fresh fruits, I added some natural yoghurt too. Natural yoghurt, with probiotics, can help (as well as the banana) to feed our “good bacteria” within our gut (colon / large intestine). Try it. My glass was definitely half full — not half empty with this healthy, nourished, and positive body and mind. The flavour is excellent, and very sweet. I also think that natural sugar is better than buying it from a packet.
Who said getting your five a day was boring, or difficult? Who said fruit doesn’t taste good. A whole pint of nutrition, I hope my body thanks me by staying healthy!
