The perfect combination: 2 portions of fruit, 3 portions of vegetables a day
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?

Do you know the healthy meaning behind the color of fruits and vegetables?
If you're looking for a way to make your meals livelier and healthier, look no further than your grocery store aisle. There you will find a rainbow of fruits and vegetables - from the lightest white to the brightest orange and the deepest purple. Fruits and vegetables, they keep us healthy and add variety, taste and texture to our diet. With so many colorful fruits and vegetables to choose from, and with so many ways to enjoy them, you'll find it's easy to create a "colorful" diet that is nutritious and delicious. The benefits are enormous. Yet, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), most of us don't eat enough fruits and vegetables. We should consume at least 400g every day to reap their health and nutritional benefits.
Basil is pretty good for you
Basil is one of my favorite herbs. You have plenty of reasons to use every leaf of a basil bunch, because it's really good for you. I have studied some scientific studies on basil. The high levels of antioxidants and minerals in basil really ensure that basil has significant health benefits. However, it is not entirely clear what amounts of basil should be used to achieve its health benefits. Nevertheless, basil is a great addition to any kitchen and adds both flavor and personality to many dishes.
