Fruit and vegetables are convenient. They provide invaluable fiber that fills you up and keeps your digestive system working properly. They’re naturally low in calories. They can help reduce the risk of a bevy of diseases, and are rich in vitamins and minerals that help you feel healthy and energized.

Still, research shows that about 75% of people consume less than five fruits or vegetables a day. Getting more into your diet doesn’t have to be complicated: simple changes at each meal, and in between, can get you on the path to a truly balanced diet.
