Is Fresh Fruit Important for your Vegan Diet?

A healthy vegan or vegetarian diet relies on fruits and vegetables to provide much of the fiber, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients needed every day.

It's important to eat plenty of fruits (at least 3 servings) and vegetables (at least 4 servings) every day. Fresh, raw produce is usually the best choice, but there's benefits to cooked, canned, and frozen, too. When you can afford to do so, buy organic produce, as it has the best flavor and the most nutrients; if you're on a tight budget, purchase organic produce if the conventional alternative is typically high in pesticides—like peaches, apples, bell peppers, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, imported grapes, spinach, lettuce, and potatoes.
