A way to make vegetables even more nutritious
Monday, 29 March · 1 min read

It’s no secret that vegetables are good for you, but eating them raw packs an even healthier punch.

Vegetables are loaded with essential vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants that keep your heart healthy and reduce your risk of disease.

But when vegetables are cooked, valuable nutrients may be lost. By eating more raw vegetables, you can supercharge your daily intake of vitamins, minerals and fibre.

So, next time you need a snack, munch on raw vegetables.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try raw parsnip sticks, or grate some parsnip over a salad. Raw parsnips have a naturally sweet and spicy flavour and are high in vitamin C and folate.
