Do you eat enough fruits and vegetables each day? If you have any question about it, you need to check out the Center for Disease Control’s “Fruits and Veggies Matter” website.
What’s great about it is this…They have a fun little calculator that enables you to plugin your age, sex and physical activity level which then calculates how much fruits and veggies you should be eating each day. Along with that, it gives you sample recipes to help you include these necessary food groups into your meals.
Now…couple all of this with some other fun interactive tools like the “Analyze My Plate” tool and the “What Counts as a Cup” feature and you’ve got a great resource for nutrition!!
I encourage any cyclist who is interested in eating right to make sure they visit the “Fruits and Veggies Matter” website, if anything, just for fun.
