You don’t wear the same trousers and same shirt every day. People regularly change their hairstyles and other physical characteristics. Variation keeps things unpredictable, fun and exciting. It also stimulates a lot of new insights and creativity. We naturally don’t eat the same vegetables every day either, and just as well too! A varied diet is very important for our health.
Eating a variety of vegetables is healthy
Variety is healthy! The same is true of variety with different vegetables. Not only due to the cheerful, festive colours, but also because of the different vitamins and nutrients. Vary yellow, green and red vegetables to your heart’s content. The fact is that green vegetables are different to yellow or red. Not just in colour, but also in terms of the composition of, for example, vitamins. To get all the vitamins and nutrients you need, eating a wide variety of food is essential.
Eating a variety of vegetables is good for the eyes, circulation, bones, your weight, bowel movements, your immune system and your brain. And the different colours make it a celebration!
Every food contains different nutrients in varying amounts. By eating a varied diet, you have the greatest chance of ensuring that your body gets sufficient quantities of all nutrients. And by making sure that you eat different colours of fruit and vegetables, you automatically increase the variation.
