We all want to be healthy right?

But what does that actually mean in food wise? The World Health Organisation recommends that every person must east at least 400g of fruit and vegetables each day. This is supposed to help in the prevention of chronic lifestyle diseases such as heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. At Anticos we do all in our power to ensure that our customers always have a wide variety of vegetables available in our shop. This includes everything from apples, bananas to nectarines and grapes.

⦁ What to stock your fridge and pantry with

Typically, your fridge must be filled with dairy products and other alternatives such as almond milk, Greek yoghurt, feta cheese as well as plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Good condiments such as soy sauce and mustard for your hot dogs can also be included. For those days when you can’t get fresh fruit, you can stock up on healthy dried fruit such as dates, figs and prunes as well as some marinated vegetables like olives and eggplant. With such in a fridge you will never go wrong.

In your pantry you must stock up with wholegrain products such as sourdough bread. A mixture of grains like bulgar wheat, quinoa, rice and pasta as well as dried and canned legumes such as lentils, four bean mix and chickpeas must also be included. Your herb rack must always be overflowing with plenty of herbs and spices for any type of meal that you decide to make for your family. For those times when you feel like snacking, nuts like almonds and walnuts are a good snack to keep in the pantry.

⦁ The role of fruits and vegetables in your diet

All types of fruits and vegetables have numerous nutrients that are necessary to support your immune system. They also ensure that you get enough fibre which promotes good gut health. Did you know that if you have good gut health then your immune system becomes stronger? When choosing fruits for your family, aim for a variety of fruits and vegetables. This ensures that you really are getting well rounded nutrition.

If you feel a little overwhelmed by all this, don’t worry. We have a list of fruits to get you started and motivated. Apples, bananas, mandarins, pineapples and strawberries are good to start of with. To add to that you can have onions, tomatoes, cucumber, spinach, corn and carrots. If you start of with just those, you will surely be on your way to eating more healthily.
