    Fruits and Vegetables Directory

    Fruits and vegetables make up a huge part of a healthy diet. They contain essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that keep your body functioning well and protect it against harmful free radicals. The food pyramid calls for 2 1/2 to 3 cups of vegetables and 1 1/2 to 2 cups of fruit per day for adults. Most Americans fall far behind those recommendations. To get all your fruits and veggies, consider creative ways to add them to your diet.
