5 a Day

Adding enough fruits and vegetables to one's diet is probably one of the most important steps towards good nutrition. Eating a combination of 5 fruits and vegetables helps you get adequate nutrients and fibers. The natural antioxidants that it provides help keep your body working at its best, and give your body a strong defense against disease.
  • Prunes Not only a great source of fiber, but prunes are also a concentrated source of the antioxidant vitamins A and C, iron and potassium.
  • Pears Are a low-GI (low glycemic) fruit with plenty of vitamin C. They also contain good amounts of copper, which our body needs to produce the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase that prevents cells damage.
  • Blueberries Are a super food for the brain, one of the best sources of antioxidant phytonutrients, which support healthy brain function and improve cognitive abilities. Blueberries also help prevent high blood pressure, macular degeneration and brain damage leading to Alzheimer's disease.
  • Apples Contain plant compounds called phenolics which help in protecting the brain from free radical damage. They are also rich in soluble fiber to help regulate blood-sugar levels .
  • Red lentils Are great vegetarian sources of iron and provide zinc and B vitamins. They are also rich in protein and fiber so can provide steady slow burning energy to maintain concentration.
