FIVE A DAY….IN LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES!
We all know that I am all about living a balanced life. Life is busy enough without having to try and eat every meal, so I often have a smoothie a day to get in my extra protein and because I find my NutriBullet has been life changing for getting in the fruit or veg I need too!
Nutribullet have sent me some interesting new research with regards to the recommended 5 a Day:
“Researchers from the Imperial College London who analysed data from 95 studies concerning fruit and vegetable intake found that, the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day significantly reduces disease risk, but the greatest benefit comes from eating double that: 800g a day (at 80g per portion).
The study associated 10 portions a day with a 28% reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, 13% reduced risk of cancer, and a whopping 31% reduction in the risk of dying prematurely.
CANSA, the Cancer Association of South Africa, recommends in addition to cutting out harmful food and substances and increasing your intake of beneficial foods, it is important to choose healthy, non-denaturing food preparation methods, too.”
I have found that owning a NutriBullet for the last few years has really helped me to get in what I need, and also helped me be more creative with veggies and fruit that I am using together. Variety is the spice of life! The NutriBullet’s patented nutrient extractors release all the critical vitamins and minerals contained within the fruit and veggies – rendering all the beneficial fibre, pulp, seeds and skins into a smooth-as-silk texture – it delivers delicious health to your body in an easily digestible, easily absorbable form.
If you’re like me and need some variety in your smoothies, the folks over at NutriBullet have some awesome recipes on their website! Go check out the recipes here, and you’ll find the whole ‘10 a day’ mega-health becomes an easily achievable and tasty solution for the whole family.
