Vegetables Vs. Fruit

fresh_vegetables_in_basket-2560x1600.jpg“Eat your fruits and vegetables” is what you always hear when someone is trying to give you advice on eating healthy. But, is one better than the other? Or is one (or both) not good for your health either?

Well, the truth is that vegetables win this fight. Veggies are packed full of nutrients and enzymes that your body needs. Now this does not mean that all veggies are equally healthy. Some are more nutritious than others.

Fruit on the other hand can have some great vitamins but has lots of sugars. These sugars are called fructose. They are natural sugars found in fruits but can be just as destructive to the body as regular sugar . Of course it is still better to eat an apple or an orange instead of candy or cake. But, fruits just like sweets need to be monitored.

So when it comes to eating your fruits and veggies make the wiser choice and eat the veggies. Avoid the fructose rich fruit and eat the nutrient full vegetables.
