Vegetable or Fruit? Tomato? Zucchini? Green Beans? Alright!
The green beans are a freebie. They’re vegetables!
But the tomato and zucchini are actually fruits though they’re
manytimes used in dishes thought to be vegetable
based. No big deal! New Roads Chiropractic Center does not
mind a bit. A healthy New Roads chiropractic treatment plan incorporates
them all…right along with the spinal manipulation. As
long as you enjoy eating fruits and vegetables filled
with phytonutrients, you are being kind to your body!
And late summer in the northern hemisphere at any rate is the perfect
time to relish these fresh-from-the-garden delights!
Your New Roads chiropractor has a
fondness for phytonutrients! Fruits and vegetables are packed with phytonutrients, nature’s natural chemicals that shield
plants from bugs, fungi, germs, and other such troubles. We
humans eat these fruits and vegetables and benefit
from their phytonutrients, too! The more than 25,000 phytonutrients keep the body in good working shape and help avert
disease. Phytonutrients you have likely heard of include
carotenoids (red, orange and yellow color-creating), flavonoids
(cancer-preventing, asthma/cancer/heart disease risk-reducing),
and reservatrol (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, heart disease and cancer
preventing). (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center purports that eating
all the fresh fruits and vegetables this season will be good for

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Lots of New Roads farmers and backyard gardeners
are generously giving away their harvest! Tomatoes,
zucchini and beans are plentiful! Take advantage of the tomatoes’ nutrients like potassium, vitamin C
and vitamin A and phytonutrients that may decrease prostate cancer
risk, reinforce heart and eyesight health, safeguard
skin against sun damage. (2) A new study just reported
on the benefit of eating more tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and
citrus fruits in decreasing colorectal cancer. (3) Green beans serve
up vitamins K, C, A and B’s folate, riboflavin, thiamin and minerals copper
and magnesium to support brain function, cellular damage repair,
and bone health. All that in so few calories loaded
with good protein! (4) Zucchini offers much the same – few
calories, high protein, many vitamins (C, B6, A, folate,
riboflavin and thiamin) plus manganese, magnesium,
phosphorous, and potassium. As a matter of fact, a cup of zucchini provides
24% of the daily need for vitamin C! That’s
good for cell protection, cancer prevention, better skin. (5) Don’t turn down those garden gifts! Enjoy some tasty
phytonutrients in these late summer harvest goodies.
