How to start eating healthy
We all know that fruits and vegetables are good for your body. But did you know that the colours make a difference? Plant-based foods have more than 25,000 phytonutrients. These not only give plants their colour but also act as antioxidants. Which means they come with many health benefits. So, you can get your nutrients from a rainbow of fruits and vegetables instead of supplements. All you have to do is eat them.
5 ways to eat a rainbow
Have a serving of fruits and vegetables with your meal
Eat a mixture of 2-3 colours with each plate
Snack on fruit and vegetables. You can try celery or carrot sticks with hummus, apple slices dipped in peanut butter or plain yogurt with fresh fruits and nuts.
Plan your meals ahead of time
Be adventurous! There are so many types of fruits and veggies, so try something new.
Other ways to strengthen the immune system
Exercise for at least 150 minutes a week or 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week.
Get at least 6.5 to 7 hours of sleep daily
Practice good hygiene and wash your hands regularly
Minimise stress and take some time to unwind and relax
To sum up
You can do your bit to help your immune system fight for you. It’s as easy as eating fruits and vegetables and all the nutrients and antioxidants that come with them. So slide them into your daily diet but don’t stop there. Remember to also be physically active and get enough sleep. Your immune system needs those too.
