Even though fruits and vegetables are incredibly beautiful and versatile, so there are countless ways to get your daily dose, I find it a challenge to take as many servings of fresh fruits and vegetables as recommended every day. According to the World Health Organization, we should actually eat a minimum of 400 grams of fruit and vegetables per day. These 'wonder foods' provide our bodies with an abundance of nutrients, strengthen the immune system and help reduce the risk of a number of diseases. We usually know this, but how do you make it happen every day?
It is recommended to eat fish or seafood once or twice a week, once oily fish. Why? A diet with too little omega-3 fatty acids from fish and shellfish is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. A portion of 120 to 130 g of fish (weighed raw) is sufficient.
