Get Ten Fruits and Veggies a Day

Sharon Palmer

Everyone knows that eating your fruits and veggies is good for you. But most of us fall short of meeting our goals. Eating the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables a day reduces risk of disease, but English researchers say eating ten servings provides the greatest results. In this meta-analysis that assessed cases of heart disease, stroke, cardiovascular disease, and cancer in two million people, researchers estimated that 7.8 million premature deaths worldwide could potentially be prevented each year if people ate 10 servings (800 grams) of fruits and vegetables each day. So, what are you waiting for! Get started with this recipe featured above for Thai Tempeh Noodle Skillet.
