Remember that old saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”? Crunchy and munchy, apples make a great snack. They’re full of fibre and vitamin C for a healthy gut and immune system. One apple counts as a serving of fruit in Froogie.
Cabbage, spinach, kale, chard and bok choy are all examples of dark leafy greens. These are the nutritional powerhouse veggies – good sources of vitamins, iron and cancer-fighting chemicals called phytonutrients. One cup of raw leafy greens counts as a serving in Froogie.
Watermelon Slurp is one cool Froogie! Sweet and juicy, a slice of watermelon is a refreshing snack any day! A half cup of watermelon counts as a serving in Froogie, and delivers vitamins A, B6 and C, potassium and lycopene, all important for overall health.
Radishes are a member of the cruciferous family like broccoli and cabbage, delivering a nutritional punch in small packaging. Containing fibre, vitamins and minerals that boost our immune system, they taste great raw in salads or cooked in stews or casseroles. Half a cup counts as a serving in Froogie.
Corn on the cob is a summer staple for outdoor eating. But this sunshine vegetable can be cooked in soups, stews and eaten in salads. Sweet corn is full of cancer-protective vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It is also one of the best sources of fibre for healthy digestion. One ear of corn counts as a serving in Froogie.
Like little trees on your plate, broccoli florets are a good source of vitamins C, A and K, folate, calcium, fibre and antioxidants. Eat broccoli raw or cooked, or serve as a snack with hummus dip. Half a cup counts as a serving in Froogie.
Not just for rabbits, carrots have long been credited with helping us see in the dark. This is not just a myth – beta-carotene is found in carrots and is good for eye health. Carrots also contain fibre, vitamins and minerals. Raw or cooked, one large carrot counts as a serving in Froogie.
A relatively new kid on the block, the dragon fruit is so-called because the red skin has green scales that resemble a dragon. The taste has been likened to a less sweet cross between a pear and a kiwi. Like other fruits, this little beauty has lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to keep us in good health. Half a cup counts as a serving for Froogie.
The opposite of chilly, these feisty, spicy peppers are usually only eaten in small amounts. But their milder bell pepper relatives are a great source of vitamin C and other important vitamins and minerals for health. Half a regular pepper counts as a serving in Froogie.
