The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN) has declared 2021 as the year of Fruits and Vegetables.
At B.A.R.E. Creations we are all about eating well and the inclusion of snacks as part of your daily nutrition. With the growing consciousness of making all our food count in our daily wellness journey, fruits and vegetables can be easily added to our B.A.R.E. Creations base recipe. The options for additions and personalization are endless.
Why should you add fruit and vegetables to your daily routine?
1. Harness the goodness
Fruits and vegetables have multiple health benefits, including the strengthening of the immune system, that are essential for combating malnutrition in all its forms and overall prevention of non-communicable diseases. This is becoming increasingly important during the COVID-19 pandemic.
2. Your daily dose
Fruits and vegetables should be consumed in adequate amounts daily as part of a diversified and healthy diet. The FAO recommends eating 400 grams (about 5 servings) of fruits and vegetables every day.
3. Innovate and reduce food waste
Innovation in your recipes provide variety. It is also a chance to use up fruits and vegetables that may be on their last leg. An over ripe banana has a wonderful future in a B.A.R.E. Creations recipe. The addition provides extra potassium, B6, Vitamin C Magnesium, Copper and fiber.
Remember we have lots of great fruit and vegetable additions on our website. Check out the recipe ideas at www.BARECreations.com
It is also a great way to get some extra nutrition into the kids that are sometimes less fond of fruits and vegetables!
