Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of fruit and vegetables
In our healthy diet we recommend taking more vegetables than fruit. The fruit, in small amounts, is an essential element in our diet but excess sugar can bring to our organization. We recommend taking a piece of fruit a day, best taken between meals as a dessert. It is best to choose organic fruit, local and seasonal. It can be eaten raw or cooked, depending also on the season: while in summer our bodies need the freshness of raw fruit in winter the cooked fruit is better assimilated.
As for the vegetables in our diet we recommend a wide variety of vegetables with different shapes, colors, growing season and nutritional content, both in lunch and dinner, especially highlighting the benefits of green vegetables. We recommend that most vegetables are cooked, although a small portion may be up raw vegetables.
