You’ve heard the old saying “a healthy outside starts on the inside”, right? If so, it should come as no surprise that the way we function, look and feel on the outside is entirely dependent on how we function, look and feel on the inside. From the foods we consume to the stressors we’re exposed to on a daily basis, there are various factors that contribute to compromising our inner wellness and the way our body operates.
So, what’s the miracle cure for better functioning insides? There’s nothing revolutionary about the fact that the best preventative for most illnesses and diseases has been hiding away in our refrigerator crisper drawers collecting dust and growing mould. Yep, I’m talking about fruit and vegetables. Seems pretty obvious, right? Despite what is seemingly common knowledge drilled into most of us from a young age, did you know that only 7% of adults report consuming the recommended five serves of vegetables a day? To put that into perspective, that means 93% of us are missing out on the vital nutrients our body and brain requires to function and perform at its best.
What’s the problem?
In an ideal world, we’d all read this blog post, run to the shops, stock up on fruit and vegetables, and instantly start incorporating more greens into our diets from this day forward. However, in the fast-paced nature of today’s society, many of us struggle to find enough hours in the day to wash our hair, let alone prioritise hitting our daily greens target. Let’s be real - convenience is no longer seen as a luxury, but rather an expectation!
However, the impact of not consuming our recommended daily requirement of greens is far more detrimental to our health than many of us realise. In this day and age, our bodies are exposed to greater environmental stressors than ever before. These stressors wreak havoc on our internal health by damaging our cells, which our body can effectively manage and ward off if our diet is on point. However, stress, traffic pollution, poor diet, heavy training, and illness each play a serious role in contributing to accelerated cell damage every day, which can cause serious health implications if left unattended over an extended period of time.
So, where do fruit and vegetables come into the picture? Fruit and vegetables are rich in fibre, which plays an important role in keeping our gut healthy...and if you aren’t already aware, maintaining optimal gut health is paramount to maintaining optimal mental, digestive and immune health. Additionally, fruit and vegetables are also rich in antioxidants, micronutrients and phytochemicals, which help to combat the cellular damage caused by the known stressors of everyday life.
