Happy Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month

With a bounty of fresh seasonal produce crowding farmers’ markets, the beginning of summer is the perfect time to be more aware of healthy eating habits. And what better month than “Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month,” which falls in June of every year?

Research has always been unambiguous: fruits and vegetables are critical to promoting and maintaining a healthy, well-rounded diet. Many dieticians and experts say, in fact, that fruit and vegetables should be the foundation of the diet. The Food Pyramid suggests that we eat 3-5 servings of vegetables and 2-4 servings of fruit each day. At ECI Management Group, we strongly believe in the health benefits fruit and vegetables provide, which is why all our food is made from scratch, ensuring its freshness.

Fruits and vegetables are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, and different combinations of disease-fighting phytochemicals, usually related to color. Eating more fruit and vegetables than you think you need can help reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, Type II Diabetes, and certain cancers. Eating the spectrum of colors can also help balance out your diet and give you a plethora of vitamins. All those greens, yellow-oranges, reds, blue-purples, and whites are not just pretty; they work together to make you healthy!

Fruit and vegetables, as well as keeping you disease-free and sick less often, can be integral in weight management and restoring energy levels. Because they’re low in calories and high in fiber, they prevent unwanted weight gain, and you can eat more when you’re not watching calories. Busy lives and stressful jobs require a diet that is energizing and nutritious. Fruit and vegetables are easy foods to eat on-the-go, perfect for the full-time student or administrator. As a natural source of energy, they have many nutrients that can keep you going for those long hours.

With clients in education and business, ECI Management Group feels strongly about ensuring the health and energy levels of hard-working people. Fresh fruit and vegetables month is the perfect opportunity to embrace these natural wonders that are already delectable: they need no processing or preservatives. It will remain ECI Management Group’s commitment to make all our meals from scratch with the freshest of ingredients, and never to use high fructose corn syrup, which lowers the caloric content of our meals considerably. Dining should be a time to celebrate friends, family, and good food, not to worry about calories.

Eating fresh fruit and vegetables this month, and in the months to come, will help you feel more upbeat and nourished. Go to your local farmers’ market, or even invest in a veggie garden at home. From all of us at ECI Management Group, Happy Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month and “Bon appétit!”
