Hope you are all enjoying my mini nutrition series.
In continuation to my mini nutrition series, we will finally talk about Greens (fruit and veg).
Fresh Fruit and Vegetables contain many macronutrients, vitamins and minerals that your body needs to be healthy and strong.
Fruits and vegetables also help boost our immune system, boost our metabolism and help prevent disease.
You also get fibre from fruit and veg, which ensures a healthy digestive system and gut.
You should include:
Raw or cooked veg, greens and non starchy vegetables. Eg, leafy greens, broccoli.
How much should I need at each meal?
Aim for 7-10 portions of veg/fruit per day.
• One serving= 1 cup of leafy greens
1 med sized piece of fruit
½ cup chopped fruit/veg
• To optimise fat burn, try to limit yourself to 1-2 pieces of fruit per day, as it can be full of hidden sugars (carbs)
• To optimise muscle, gain try to eat fruit and veg on 1:3 ratio.
