Mindful Monday GOKI Readers, my first question is: Where did the sun go? If yesterday was the first official day of  Spring, Why, oh why has it been sleeting and yes, SNOWING, in some parts of the NorthEast? I say, Mother Nature has a funny sense of humor!
Well, onto my series of health tips, hopefully these tips are of some benefit to all of you.

March 21, 2011 Health Tip Of The Day

Eat A Variety Of Fruits And Vegetables

Eating a variety of fruits and vegetables is key to a healthy diet. Fruits and vegetables are rich in different essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Eating a variety ensures a greater intake of these essential nutrients; aim to try different types and colors. Whether you are choosing fresh, frozen, canned, dried, or juice, you will receive the added benefits of this healthy food group. Juices and canned fruits do not provide as much fiber as the other types, so it is best to eat the fruit or vegetable more often. Eat at least five servings per day of fruits and vegetables, consisting of at least two servings of fruit and three servings of vegetables.

As always, To Your Health!
