As a Nutritionist, I understand there are a few factors that most individuals and families struggle with when it comes to eating enough plant foods daily. These include:
4. We lack variety! Many of us who do make a point of eating plant foods everyday, tend to stick to the same varieties which means we are missing out on a multitude of health building antioxidants and phytonutrients found in other varieties of plants.
