It is a well know fact that fruits and vegetables are good for our bodies,  but it would appear that many people are still unaware of their healing properties.

I have taken some time to look at, consume and document a number of fruits and vegetables that I have personally found them amazing and have incorporated them in my daily diet.

Obesity is a problem that, in my opinion we can defeat if we take the time to change our eating habits.  Some might say that I am on a mission to help anyone overcome this disease.  There are so many health problems associated with obesity that it is all in our interest to fight this 21st Century problem.
