National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month: 4 Effective Yet Simple Ways to Start a Healthy Diet
This June, Become a Fan of Nature’s Foods!
Everyone wants to live a healthy life. To achieve this, we need to follow a strict diet and exercise program, and, unfortunately, this is not as easy as it may sound.
In June of each year, we celebrate Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month to encourage more people to eat healthier and add more nutrients to their diets. The month-long event seeks to promote activities and opportunities for people to shift to healthier meals to reduce the risk of obesity and other chronic diseases.
Fruit and vegetables have proven for centuries that they carry many health benefits for our bodies. But what can you do if you’re not a fan of nature’s foods? Here are simple yet effective ideas on how you can gradually incorporate fruit and veggies into your meals:
- Try preparing veggies in different ways.
Some people are immediately turned off by healthy diets because they see them as bland and flavorless. This is not true. You can try unique approaches to cooking vegetables by roasting instead of steaming them. They still retain their natural vitamins and minerals, and you get the extra crunch when you bite into their flavorful goodness.
- Keep them hidden.
Chopping and shredding veggies into super small, unnoticeable pieces is a popular technique among moms who want to feed their children fruits and vegetables without hearing complaints from them. If you’re not a fan of vegetables and fruit, you can do the same when you include tiny pieces of them in your favorite meals.
- Season them.
If you want to add flavor to fruit and veggies, season them with herbs and spices. This will give them an additional layer of flavor, which may surprise you.
- Make your salads interesting.
You can mix up your greens and add different flavors to your salads by experimenting with different dressings. You can even work on your presentation to make them more appealing and appetizing.
Enrich the Lives of Disadvantaged Folks in Your Community
The celebration of National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month reminds us of the need to stay healthy in mind and body so we can live happy and productive lives. However, not everybody gets the chance to live such a life. They include those folks in your local community who are saddled with disadvantages that prevent them from breaking free from poverty.
You can become a beacon of hope for them by performing a simple act. Simply donate an old and unwanted car to us at Goodwill Car Donations.
We’ll use your charitable contribution to uplift the lives of the disadvantaged men and women in your community while giving you all the valuable rewards you deserve for your generosity.
We will auction off your donated vehicle and turn over the proceeds to the Goodwill organizations serving your area. These IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofits cater to underprivileged Americans — those who are burdened with disabilities, lack of education, job experience, or essential skills, and other limiting personal issues, such as having prison or police records and being welfare-dependent.
Your local Goodwill organizations use the funding we give to provide their beneficiaries with job and skills training, vocational services, scholarships, financial aid, mentoring and internship assistance, disability benefits, family support, and other types of support services. These are all meant to equip them with the tools that will help them attain economic independence and a better quality of life.
We’ll pick up and tow your vehicle for free wherever you had it parked or stored anywhere in the country. Your donation will also entitle you to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.
What’s more, you can count on us to provide you with a highly satisfying donation experience, knowing that your act of charity will help generate new jobs in your community. These are new opportunities for growth and progress that will benefit all residents.
