Eat­ing at least five daily serves of ve­g­ies is one of the best things you can do for your health, so load up your plate!

Va­ri­ety is key to max­imis­ing your in­take of vi­ta­mins, min­er­als, fibre and an­tiox­i­dants, so eat with the sea­sons and aim for at least three dif­fer­ent-coloured veg at each meal.

If you’re a salad per­son, reach for ve­g­ies like spinach, let­tuce, tomato and cu­cum­ber. Car­rots, cap­sicum and radishes are also win­ners. If cooked veg­eta­bles take your fancy, fill your plate with broc­coli, car­rot, cauliflower and zuc­chini. Egg­plant, Asian greens and mushrooms are per­fect, too. And re­mem­ber to leave the skin on where pos­si­ble to max­imise fibre and an­tiox­i­dants.

1 cup broc­coli 1 small tomato

1 cup leafy greens
