The Health Benefits of Fruits and Vegetables (Protectors)

The Power Of Fruits and Vegetables

It all started from the need to get more protein without beef or egg, not to mention the different protein powder mixes available for us today.  It all just did not sit quite right with me. The more I thought about getting all that goodness into a capsule… behold, I reunited with fruits and vegetables.

Today, more than ever, actual life experiences, written and documented research, tells us that we can find all there is needed to have our best workout routines. Whether we eat to run, walk, play tennis, weight train, or have fun with our family and friends, we can do this by being vibrant, happy, and having more energy than ever.  We can also eat our veggies and fruits with elaborate and wonderful, tasty ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
