Being healthy is the best thing ever. It’s perhaps not groundbreaking but it’s definitely the thing to be right now.
With the healthy food delivery services that have become available and with more popping up everywhere of late, this couldn’t be a better time to start getting on the health train!
Being healthy doesn’t just stop at your main meals. These days, there are various ways to improve one’s health and diet and one of the most popular ways right now is the rise of the freshly pressed juices to complement your diet. Have you ever heard of people asking if you’ve had your ‘5-a-day’ intake? It’s a national campaign that a few countries (the USA, United Kingdom and Germany) to encourage consumption of at least 5 portions of fruits and vegetables a day.
The World Health Organisation has recommended “a minimum of 400g of fruit and vegetables per day excluding potatoes and other starchy tubers” in their Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health to promote fruit and vegetable consumption around the world.
For some people, it can be a little tricky to have portions of 5 fresh fruits and vegetables a day, especially if you eat out often or if you’re not personally not a fan of fruits or veggies. However, it is not impossible. Juices are a terrific way to get in those recommended portions of fruits and vegetables. All you have to do is drink the lot and you’re sorted! No need to prepare the vegetables or fruits – just drink.
Time is very precious for many and a lot of us simply don’t have the time to go grocery shopping. Thus, food deliveries is the answer, such as getting your grocery shopping done online or having your meals delivered to you.
Food deliveries have now gotten better because there are now juiceries that deliver freshly pressed juices to your home. So, getting healthy has never gotten more convenient!
