If you’re quite familiar with the human evolution, you’ll remember that there was a theory claiming we were all vegetables at a certain old era in time. With that piece of information aside, people have started neglecting plant based food and always turn to unhealthy eating choices.

Fruits and veggies are essential to cleans and strengthen your body. It can also protect you from cancer and other severe diseases. It should be simple, really. People should learn that the body needs to be nourished properly, not just for the sake of being skinny or having a toned body, but also because what you eat is how you’ll feel.

For instance, ever notice how your body and overall mood feels after eating a good old burger or maybe even a pizza? Yes you’ll be feeling satisfied for feeding your guilty pleasure, but if you really listen to what you’re body is trying to tell you, you’d know that it’s very unhappy.

This leads to affecting your mood. If your body is being fed bad unhealthy food, your body would be unsatisfied, thus your mood will feel stingy as well. Yes, all because of the food you’re eating!

This is how important fruits and vegetables are. They’re super clean and are filled with so many rich nutrients and protein. For those of you who complain about bad mood swings, stomach aches, and depression, you need to make a serious change to your diet.

What with all the Coronavirus shenanigans, it’s crucial to eat as healthy as possible to keep yourself well protected. Fruits and veggies are a must and we have to start incorporating it in our day to day lives. The better you eat, the healthier your mind will be.
