Fresh fruits and vegetables are necessary to get the necessary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It also provides antioxidants. It reduces inflammation, lowers blood pressure, and lowers blood sugar levels. It is recommended to add a small portion of vegetables and fruits to your meals to prevent constipation. Additionally, it may prevent certain diseases. 

Vegetables and fruits can be slowly incorporated into your breakfast. An easy way to add vegetables and fruits is in a salad. Eating fruits and vegetables may help you feel energetic. It helps you control or lose weight depending on how you eat it. Here is the recipe for this salad. 


One or two apples

Two or three radishes

Baby spinach 

One or two cucumbers

Grape tomatoes

Salad dressing

Wash and dry your spinach leaves. Peel and slice cucumbers. Wash the grape tomatoes. Last wash and slice the radishes. In one bowl, mix the spinach leaves, tomatoes, radishes, and cucumbers. 

Next, wash and slice apples to add to your salad. You can use your favorite salad dressing. I like to use Balsamic vinegar or Italian salad dressing to taste the apples mixed in the salad. This side salad serves one or two people. Here are more resources for adding vegetables and fruits to your meals.

  1. I'd never heard of National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month before. But, I can understand why it exists given that people nowadays don't eat enough fruit and vegetables. Although I prefer frozen vegetables so I generate less waste
