It takes more than just an apple a day to keep the doctor away, as we know. But sometimes, getting in your five-a-day can seem to be just a veggie pie in the sky. Who actually has the time to prepare five different portions of seasonal fruit and veg every day, especially when feeding a busy family?

And yet we know we must as soaring rates of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer can all be traced back to unhealthy diets. So, how do we change?

We can start by doubling our five a day, for one.

Researchers from the Imperial College London who analysed data from 95 studies concerning fruit and vegetable intake found that the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day significantly reduces disease risk, but the greatest benefit comes from eating double that – 800g a day.

The study associated 10 portions a day with a 28% reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, 13% reduced risk of cancer, and a whopping 31% reduction in the risk of dying prematurely.

CANSA, the Cancer Association of South Africa, recommends in addition to cutting out harmful food and substances and increasing your intake of beneficial foods, it is important to choose healthy, non-denaturing food preparation methods, too.

With the revolutionary NutriBullet on your kitchen counter, you won’t need to increase your veggie recipe repertoire, or cooking equipment for that matter.
