“Thou Shall Consumeth Thy Fruit and Thy Veggie” Lettucicus 12:13

Okay, okay, maybe that’s not exactly how it’s written. In all seriousness, 1 Corinthians 10:31 says, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

Many people overlook the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. With easy access to junk food, like candy and energy drinks, eating healthy has become less and less common. It’s very important, especially as a growing individual, to maintain a healthy diet. Without fruits and vegetables, it is a very hard task to accomplish.spinach

An ideal diet, like the one pictured below, features a majority of fruits, vegetables, bread, pasta and potatoes. It’s still important to consume some fats, meats and dairy, but the fruits and vegetables provide a healthy foundation for our bodies.

Good examples of vegetables to eat would be spinach, carrots, broccoli, green peas and cabbage. Vegetables, like these, are very important because they provide essential nutrients like potassium and fiber.

Good examples of fruits to eat are apples, grapefruit, avocados, berries and pineapples. Fruits like these provide various vitamins and minerals like vitamin C and folate.grapefruit

With all of this being said, the fruits and vegetables can only give you all of these nutrients if you actually eat them. For your physical, mental and spiritual health, please make sure you’re eating your fruits and veggies. You’re welcome, moms.
