We’ve all heard the expression that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” and it seems to have some truth to it! Fruits and vegetables are packed with nutrients, fiber and water and are among the best foods to incorporate into your daily diet. Bigelow Tea learned that June is Fruit & Vegetable Month, so we thought we’d take this opportunity to extol the virtues of nature’s bounty and to introduce you to a few of our fruit teas!
The Centers for Disease Control has stated that fruits and veggies are important as sources of vitamins and minerals like potassium, folate and Vitamin C. In fact, the study says eating plenty of fruits and vegetables can aid in weight management and protect your health. “Compared with people who consume a diet with only small amounts of fruits and vegetables, those who eat more generous amounts as part of a healthful diet are likely to have reduced risk of chronic diseases, including stroke and perhaps other cardiovascular diseases, and certain cancers.”
And did we mention that fruits and veggies are super-tasty? We know this because we love fruit too at Bigelow Tea! In fact, many of our teas are made with delicious fruit flavors. Our fruity varieties include Herb Teas like Perfect Peach, Green Tea flavors such as Green Tea with Wild Blueberry and Acai, and Black Tea choices including Pomegranate Black Tea. Yum!
Fruits and veggies are attractive, easy to prepare and tasty! So whether it’s Fruit & Vegetable Month or any day of the year, you can’t go wrong grabbing that apple a day!
