Finding Diversity in Our Food

Sep 30, 2022

Food is one of the world’s greatest gifts. Somehow, all of the elements in the world allow for us to grow and nourish our bodies through what the earth provides. Depending on where you are in the world or what season you are in, food availability is wildly diverse.

Did you know that there are over 1,000 different types of vegetables grown throughout the world? You could eat a different vegetable every day for three years and never repeat a type of produce. Not only does this wide variety keep our brains and bellies satisfied with choices, we are exposed to a number of different nutrients.

Our bodies need so many different nutrients, minerals, and goodies to work their best. Each vegetable has a different superpower nutrient that supports our bodies. Get a variety of vegetables in your meals, and walk away with a dozen new superpowers!

How can you add more diversity to your meal today? What vegetable will you try?
