Your mum was right when she told you to eat your greens when you were growing up…  She does forgot to mention about the reds, yellows and oranges.

Variety is the spice of life they say, this applies to eating too…  Variety is important to get a good mixture of vitamins and minerals, eat as many fruit and veg as posible in your diet.

The National Food Survey shows the average person in Britain eats only 3 portions per day.  If thats you, go for more to reach at least 5per day.  Store vegetables carefully and boil or microwave them in as little water as possible to retain nourishment.  Steaming is best though.

Roasted vegetables are tasty but use as little oil as possible.  You can always dry roast them.
