Most people struggle to meet the recommended “2 and 5” in a day. In fact only 6.1% of Aussie adults meet the recommended daily intake of fruit and veggies1.
But it's not just the number of serves, but the variety of plants we eat that is important. Many health professionals recommend we aim for 30 different plant foods every week.
The more diversity we have in our diet, the greater the range of nutrients are available to us. And, the more variety we develop in our friendly gut bacteria to keep our microbiome humming. A healthy, diverse microbiome supports a strong immune system, increases our resilience to infection, strengthens our intestinal barrier, balances our blood sugar and helps prevent disease.
It takes time and energy (planning/scrolling, list-writing, grocery shopping, prepping…) to get a true variety of plants in our diet.
