Benefits of a healthy diet and growing veggies yourselves
WEEGrow believe a healthy diet is essential for good health and nutrition. Reduction in the dietary intake of salt and sugars is mostly mentioned when it comes to a healthy diet. Too much salt and sugar may cause chronic diseases and increasing risks of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. But in addition to consuming less salt and sugar, eating fresh vegetables is another way to go.
Vegetables and fruits are an important part of a healthy diet. Eating fresh green vegetables is helpful to improve your health and provide you with fibre, vitamins, and plenty of antioxidants.
