Fresh Veggies Day

Fresh Veggies Day

How many fresh vegetables does it take for a person to stay healthy? How many portions of fresh vegetables should you eat each day? Seven? Ten? What makes up a portion of it?

Nutritionists agree that the average person isn’t getting enough fresh fruits and vegetables in their daily diet. A rise in the daily intake of fruits and vegetables is the main point of the day.

Fresh Veggies Day is a great opportunity to make a positive change! This is a great opportunity to invite your family, friends, neighbors, and neighbours for a surprising and fun meat-free dinner!

Fresh Veggies Day celebrates the arrival of new-season vegetables in early summer. It is a great way to kick off the summer and remind you to always look for local, fresh vegetables to add to your table throughout the year. The entire month of June is called Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month by many, giving plenty of time for new habits to form!

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that people eat at least 400g of fruits and vegetables each day. This does not include super-starchy tubers such as potatoes. The 5-a-Day program has been redesigned in Australia, France, Germany and other countries.

Fresh Veggies Day is a great opportunity for growers and farmers to share the best of what they have at the moment. Don’t stop there. You can still get in the spirit of the day and eat fresh vegetables throughout the year, as long as they are available. You can freeze extras to get through winter.

It is easy to get involved in the celebration of Fresh Veggies Day. Although it may take some planning, it is well worth it. These activities are fun, tasty, and very healthy for your family.

Keep an eye on the weather and make a stop at a local farmer’s market or specialty food store to stock up on what is available. You can also get some great recipe ideas. It’s great to meet the people who grew these vegetables. A farmers’ market will likely have other local businesses, including bakers, honey harvesters and jam makers, as well as local coffee roasters. It’s a great way to support local businesses while also being healthy.

You may be able to pick your own crop from a farm if you are harvesting early. Get together some friends and plan a day trip. You-pick farms might have seasonal offerings depending on where they are located. These may include tomatoes, peas and asparagus. You can also pick fruit from U-pick farms, which often includes blueberries, apples, rhubarb, and other fruits.

Are you unsure where to find U-pick farms in your area? This online tool will help you find local options.

It can be fun to visit a farmers’ market or U-Pick Farm. However, if you don’t have the means to get there, consider having fresh fruit and vegetables delivered to your home. Many cities and towns offer delivery services that are good for your health and the environment.

Some of them pick out less-than-perfect-looking vegetables that arrive at the door looking less than beautiful but saving the earth by avoiding a ton of waste. Imperfect Foods and Farmbox Direct are just some of the many popular produce delivery services in recent years. You can check online to find out what is available depending on where you are located.

Most gardeners will admit that home-grown vegetables are the best. They bring pride, satisfaction, and taste. Gardening forums and seed clubs make it simple and inexpensive to grow your own unique and delicious varieties of fresh vegetables.

If you want to extend the growing season or get a jumpstart, start seeds earlier in spring by sowing in small containers. These little seedlings can then be transplanted outside when the weather is warm in your area.

It is hard to find anything more delicious than a vegetable or fruit that you have grown yourself!

It may be difficult to imagine adding vegetables to your meals. Perhaps you can find inspiration in sharing new recipes. Many recipes that use fresh, unprocessed vegetables are part of the Mediterranean Diet. It is one of the healthiest diets on Earth. Grilling vegetables such as tomatoes and cucumbers, kale and spinach in olive oil is a common part of the meal plan. You can also pair them with fresh fish or put them on sandwiches.

There are many ways vegetables can be used in your meals, not just on Fresh Veggies Day but all day.
