For New Healthy Year, Make New Food Resolution of Adding More Fruits and Vegetables to Meal

On the arrival of New Year, there is also a great chance to set ideal ways to tackle different aspects of life, among which health have the uppermost priority. All kind of people should have to keep their food resolution whether they need to lose 10 pounds, gain more weight or improve their cholesterol.

Vegetable and fruits consist of high amount of fibers, are lower in calories and rich in minerals, antioxidants and vitamins which help lessen the chances of catching certain diseases. Still, most of the people fail in getting their 2 cups of fruits and 2½ cups of veggies, which are the amount suggested for a normal diet of consuming 2000 calories, says the new US dietary guidelines.

In order to add more produce in to an ideal diet, Caroline Passerrello recommends increasing the regular servings of individuals by one or two per day, who is a dietitian as well as a spokeswoman at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Passerrello said in a statement that, “When I do a pound of ground meat, I add 8 to 12 ounces of mushrooms, and you get a larger product with vitamin D and potassium. You can mix a cup of spiralized zucchini or carrots with your pasta or apples on a salad and you will have a larger portion, with more fruits and vegetables. These forms of fruits and vegetables can be time-savers and — if purchased without added sweeteners or preservatives — are just as, or more, nutritious than fresh.”
