5 Delicious Ways to Incorporate More Fruits and Vegetables into Your Diet during Nutrition Month

As we celebrate National Nutrition Month, let's embark on a journey through the colourful wonderland of fruits and vegetables. This week, we invite you to discover the benefits of incorporating a variety of vibrant produce into your meals. Not only will you create visually appealing dishes, but you'll also enjoy the unique health advantages that each colour brings.


Healthy Nutritious Foods

Vitamin C-rich Oranges:

Oranges, with their radiant hue, are a perfect addition to your meals. Bursting with vitamin C, they support immune health and protect against common colds and flu. Start your day with a refreshing glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or add segments to a salad for a zesty kick and a boost of antioxidants.


Green Marvels for Fibre:

The vibrant greens like spinach, broccoli, and kale are a nutritional powerhouse readily available to us. These leafy vegetables are packed with fibre, promoting healthy digestion and aiding weight management. Whether steamed, stir-fried, or added to soups and stews, green vegetables add a delightful crunch and deliver essential nutrients to your diet.


Passionate Reds for Heart Health:

Enjoy the bold reds of tomatoes, red peppers, strawberries, and raspberries. These fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants, notably lycopene and anthocyanins, which contribute to heart health and protection against certain cancers. Enjoy a homemade tomato sauce, add diced red peppers to your salads, or indulge in a bowl of freshly picked strawberries to nourish your heart.


Purple Bounty for Brain Health:

The UK offers an array of purple-hued produce like purple sprouting broccoli, purple cabbage, plums, and blackcurrants. These vibrantly coloured foods are packed with anthocyanins, known for their antioxidant properties that support brain health. Incorporate them into your meals by sautéing purple veggies or adding a handful of fresh berries to your morning porridge or yogurt for a flavourful boost.


Sunny and Sweet Yellow:

Savour the sunny yellows of bananas, yellow peppers, and corn. These fruits and vegetables are rich in potassium, vitamin C, and antioxidants, contributing to good digestion and overall well-being. Whether enjoyed as a snack, added to salads, or grilled alongside other veggies, the bright yellow adds a burst of flavour and a touch of sunshine to your plate.


Don’t forget some of the above may causes disruption within your body if you are experiencing a food intolerance or Microbiome Imbalance. We will be providing ideas for alternatives on our Instagram posts over the coming weeks.
