Health Tip of the day: Eat one vegetable!

Eating just one vegetable can have a big impact on your overall health and well being. Eating vegetables has been linked to lower rates of depression, anxiety, and stress. A diet with vegetables has been suggested to prevent disease such as cancer and Alzheimer's (1). This is because vegetables are very nutrient dense and help to provide a large amount of vitamins and minerals. They are also high in antioxidants. Vegetables are full of the substances that are good for us and are free of things that are bad such as preservatives and added sugar. Vegetables are also low in calories so are part of a balanced and healthy meal plan to loose or maintain weight.

The next time that you are feeling hungry today try and find a way to add a vegetable to your diet. There are always some healthy, easy, and delicious ways to eat them. Some of my favorite ways include:

-Celery with nut butter; celery helps fight inflammation

-Cucumbers with a little bit of pink Himalayan salt; cucumbers are great at detoxing the body

-Carrots and hummus; carrots are great for benefiting the eyes
