7-a-day

For a long while now the World Health Organization has been recommending five portions of fruit and vegetables per day. However, in the last few years, research has shown that if you can increase that to seven portions a day (with one portion equalling 80g) then you significantly reduce your risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease and death from any cause. To help you reach your “seven-a-day” here are some delicious fruit- and vegetable-rich recipes including: baked stone fruit with nut seed mix; vegetarian tikka masala; pesto cauliflower pizza; vegie-packed frittata; za’atar roasted cauliflower, chickpea and kale salad; greens bowl with pesto yoghurt; teriyaki vegetable tray bake; mushroom and pea risotto; roasted pumpkin and cauliflower soup; and a cacao berry smoothie.
