Summer Food : For Good Health





The health benefits of fruit and vegetables are as abundant as the varieties available during the summer months. Here are some fruits and vegetables that should be on your grocery list this summer.


Green leafy vegetables are an important part of our diets. They are high in dietary fiber, folic acid, calcium and vitamin C in addition to being low in fat. Green leafy vegetables are known for reducing the risks of heart disease and cancer but recent research has shown they can also reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Just 1.5 extra servings of green leafy vegetables a day can have a 14% reduction in the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Watermelon is a summer staple. It is delicious and refreshing and has the power to help reduce blood pressure. Watermelon contains L-citrulline, a compound that helps widen blood vessels helping to reduce aortic blood pressure.


Tomatoes are another summer staple that should be on your grocery list. Tomatoes contain high levels of the antioxidant lycopene which has been found to reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Studies found that men who ate at least two servings of tomatoes a day, including tomato-based sauces, significantly decreased their chances of developing the disease.


Strawberries are a delicious addition to any summer menu and are known to be an excellent source of vitamin C, folic acid and contain high levels of antioxidants. Researchers have also found that strawberries can reduce inflammation.


Oranges contain more antioxidants than any other fruit. Eating at least one orange a day in addition to the five recommended fruits and vegetables a day can reduce the risk for cancers of the mouth, larynx and stomach as well as reduce the risk of stroke.


Beets are great for boosting brain health. They are high in nitrates which are converted to nitrite after consumption. These nitrites help open blood vessels increasing oxygen flow to the brain.

Adding this to your diet in summer can help u have a cheerfull summer
