Fruits and vegetables are natural fast foods. Research has shown that eating “5-A-Day” reduces the risk of cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses. Cancer, heart disease, and stroke are the three leading causes of death in the U.S.. All 3 diseases are related to diets high in fat and not enough fruits and vegetables.

Fruits and vegetables are:

  • A great way to lower your risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other illnesses.
  • A tasty, low-fat, low-salt snack.
  • High in vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and fiber.
  • Easy and quick to take on the road or eat at home.
