The colour of fruits and veg­eta­bles such as red, yel­low, orange, green and pur­ple con­tain com­pounds known as phy­to­chem­i­cals. Th­ese act as an­tiox­i­dants and help your body to ght var­i­ous pol­lu­tants, like harm­ful chem­i­cals and in­sec­ti­cides, trans fats (junk foods), and the ones that are present in the environment. Th­ese an­tiox­i­dants also help to pre­vent the de­po­si­tion of bad choles­terol. Fruits and veg­eta­bles con­tain vi­ta­mins like C and A, and also min­er­als like iron, cal­cium, potas­sium, etc, that will help give a good skin and hair tex­ture. The nat­u­ral glow, which is very es­sen­tial for mod­els, can be achieved bet­ter by con­sum­ing good por­tions of fruits and veg­eta­bles. In ad­di­tion, fruits and veg­eta­bles con­tain bre, which helps to im­prove di­ges­tion. If the con­sump­tion of fruits and veg­eta­bles is less, it will cause con­sti­pa­tion, which will in turn reect on the skin tone and out­breaks too. Fruits and veg­eta­bles are best con­sumed in the raw form (sal­ads or whole). The sal­ads can be made of­ten by us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of coloured veg­eta­bles and fruits. Also, raita (veg­eta­bles like cu­cum­bers and toma­toes with curds) is good to con­sume in the raw form. Be­sides, cooked veg­eta­bles eaten along with cha­p­atis pro­vide vi­tal nu­tri­ents. Just be care­ful of choos­ing the right cook­ing method. If veg­eta­bles are over­cooked or grilled, the nec­es­sary nour­ish­ment is lost in the process.
