Drink to your health—Vegetable juice with power
Have you experienced this? Coinciding with the first rays of sunshine many people experience the desire to do something nice for their bodies after the calorie-rich days of winter. This calls for motivation to get out and move and enjoy healthy, light foods.
Five servings of fruits and vegetables each day
The German Nutrition Association (DGE) recommends consuming five servings of fruits and vegetables each day in order to ensure enough vitamins and energy. Five servings equates to about 600 - 700 grams. The fact is that proper nutrition reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and has a positive effect on blood pressure.
