this nutri­tion­ist wants you to eat raw veg­gies

...and she wants you to do it ev­ery sin­gle day

Good (UAE) - - REAL LIFE -

iI know. We’ve heard it a thou­sand times. But the truth is, you need to eat your veg­gies. I find it hard to be­lieve when peo­ple don’t like sal­ads or find them bor­ing. Sal­ads are a great way to get your veg­gies in and there are no rules. I’m not talk­ing about a bor­ing let­tuce and tomato salad, not that there’s any­thing wrong with let­tuce or toma­toes. There are just so many op­tions and some­times we just need to think out­side the box.

In a world filled with di­etary rec­om­men­da­tions, ev­ery in­di­vid­ual ben­e­fits greatly in dis­cov­er­ing what in­di­vid­u­alised method best suits their body and life­style. Hav­ing said that,

I do be­lieve that a plant-based diet ben­e­fits most peo­ple – mean­ing most of your daily food should come from plant sources, whether you are ve­gan or not.

Eat­ing a big salad daily is an easy way to care for our­selves by en­sur­ing we get the re­quired daily dose of beau­ti­fully nu­tri­tious phy­tonu­tri­ents, those health-pro­mot­ing com­pounds that come from plants, as well as fiber, which is the in­di­gestible por­tion of plants that feed our gut bac­te­ria and en­sure proper elim­i­na­tion. That’s a quick dose of sci­ence, but what re­ally mat­ters is taste.

So let’s shake things up when it comes to mak­ing sal­ads. En­ter the spi­raliser. It’s so easy to use and such a fun way to eat your veg­gies. It’ll even make your salad In­sta­gram wor­thy. Don’t for­get to tag me.
