We all know that eating fruit and vegetables brings a wealth of health benefits. Unfortunately Australians eat under the recommended five serves of vegetables a day and just scrape in on eating two serves of fruit per day. As part of Meat Free Week we encourage you to eat five serves of vegetables daily.
A diet high in vegetables has been linked with lowering the risk of colon cancer at five or more serves per day. Vegetable targets are easy to reach in delicious meat free soups.
