Hi Guyz, I am Pooja, I am health blogger and fitness enthusiast.
Today, I'll talk about food and vegetable diet. So, Lets Begin with That.
I still remember the time when mom is used to forced me to have fruits and vegetables like all the time
and, How much I hated having those meals , I cant tell you. No tantrums worked. The only explanation
given was, it is good for your health. And over the years I have realised the importance of that

No gym, no yoga, no weight-loss treatments and no stress. Once
you start with the fruits and vegetable diet, you will see a different, and a better
you with every passing day. I can vouch for that.
Keeping up with the fast paced lifestyle isn’t easy! Crazy deadlines, ongoing meetings, social
engagements! There’s no time, When I
decided to take the health food path, my first thoughts were ‘Where’s the time to buy
those organic fruits and vegetables? And who is going to cut, peel and cook them? My lunch
break is over before I even know it. Why not just order a pasta and get done with it?
What we often fail to understand is these readily available instant food options are
the first step to bad health, digestion problems, skin and hair issues and a sudden weight gain.
Who wants to save time and look like a slouchy potato?
And here’s a scarier fact! A survey of World Health Organisation suggests that in 2013,
close to 5.2 million deaths were registered worldwide due to inadequate or no consumption
of fruits and vegetables.
It might seem like a big deal at first, but incorporating fruits and vegetables in your
daily diet is not a tough battle. All you need to do is watch what you eat and replace
it with healthier options.
Adding just 2 cups of fruits and veggies in my daily meals not just helped me shed weight,
but my skin and hair looks so much better than before.
Gone are the days of illnesses, fatigue and stress.
I have learnt to start it slow and easy. I begin with one fruit a day, fill a quarter
of my plate with raw vegetable salad, and I keep dry fruits handy to munch on .
When i crave for a quick snack. I prefer ordering salad instead of pasta, having an Apple
instead of opening that unhealthy packet of chips.
And I prefer fresh fruit juice over aerated drinks, And before I know I am sorted
Just a matter of time till gets into habit.
You must be wondering what's this whole big deal about fruits and vegetables!

It prevent illnesses but also boosts up immunity.

of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants is met. Not to forget, they
also reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
Vegetables are a rich source of vitamin A, potassium, fiber, vitamin C and folate
which helps the formation of red blood cells.
Folate rich food such as spinach, tomatoes and bell peppers is said to prevent high blood pressure
and chronic illnesses. Foods rich in vitamin A like carrots and sweet potatoes work wonders
on skin and eyes.
Most important, And how do you make these a part of your daily routine?
Try something new every now and then. I buy organic fruits and vegetables online.
I do all the cleaning and chopping over the weekend and store
them in air-tight containersin refrigerator. Thus, whenever I am back
from work I can throw them all in a bowl, add a low fat dressing, some olive oil and
my delicious salad is ready.
On weekdays, my instant breakfast is often some chopped fruits, dry fruits and berries
mixed with yogurt or cereals. It takes three exact minutes for preparation.
Quick smoothies are capable of brightening up my day. They make
me feel full and fresh as I begin my day. For lunch I often saute some vegetables like
broccoli, asparagus, beans, carrots and tomatoes in olive oil and yum it up with some italian
seasonings. I also make sure to add loads of vegetables to my omelets or pastas. Delicious
sides with asparagus, cauliflower and broccoli, sandwiches and pizzas filled with colorful
vegetables and my taste buds are enlightened.
I often brighten up my boring snack breaks with citrus fruits, berries and papayas that
are rich in vitamin C and extremely beneficial for immune system deficiencies.
VO 3 - And yes, here’s a sweet secret! Replacing a sugar loaded dessert with baked apples or
pears topped with honey and cinnamon solves the problem of sweet tooth too.
What’s important is to fall in love with that plate of healthy food and relish each
Once that happens, your fruit and vegetable diet will work like magic. Magic that you
will see in the mirror everyday.
Fruit and Vegetable diet plan helps immensely with weight loss. I remember planning a weight
loss diet regime with a friend and how it became a fun activity. We set timelines and
ate our fruits, sipped on fresh juices and took walks chatting over those delicious cucumber
bites. Our weighing scale smiled back at us in a month.
VO 4 - Fruits like apples, oranges, avocado, melons,
peaches & oranges are low in calories as compared to other foods
As the water content in them is high they take care of our hunger pangs thereby cutting
the fat drastically. Vegetables are rich in fiber.
Combining them with whole grains and lean meats, nuts, and beans adds volume to our
meals. This made sure we are always well fed. Thus, eating bigger portions make us feel
full without adding the extra pounds.
VO 5 - The math is very simple. With vitamin C rich foods like blackcurrant, blueberries,
broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries, your hair will look smooth and
lustrous. No hairfall. No thinning or premature greying of hair.
VO - Including apple, beetroot, carrot, pumpkin, spinach and tomatoes in your diet will give
you a flawless healthy skin.
Green diet is a sure-shot way to lose weight and maintain blood-sugar levels.
Some simple changes in food habits have helped me lose weight, look better and more than
anything else feel better.
VO 6 - According to World Health Organization dietary guidelines, half of the plate should
consist of fruits and vegetables.
it’s the easiest way to good health and good looks.
Eating multiple small meals during the day is the best way to get more out of this diet.
It boosts up metabolism and reduces hunger pangs too.
VO - Being vegan is in fashion these days. I leave no opportunity to binge at a salad
bar, hang out at a smoothie cafe and comfort my stress levels at a healthy dessert parlor.
I have become such an ardent fan of my fruits and vegetables diet, that you will often find
berries, nuts, dry-fruits, apples and oranges in my bag.
No matter how busy I am, all it takes to feel better is pulling out a surprise from my diet
bag and munch on it to my heart’s content. Options are available, it’s just a matter
of taking that little effort to choose them over fast food joints.
It’s time we stop giving lame reasons and switch to a lifestyle that keeps us active,
fit, calm and happy. It might seem like a big task at first but once you get a hang
of it, it’s a cakewalk. The age-old saying of ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away’
can be tweaked to ‘2 cups of fruits and veggies a day, keeps the doctor, the stress
and the fatigue away’.
Ever thought how success could be related to your good food habits? I can see the difference.
Sometimes one right decision can set your entire life back in order. I look forward
to my fruit bowl and salad. I look forward to health and happiness!
