Jainaba Jobarteh is a community garden organizer who lives and works in Madrid, Spain. She’s passionate about growing edible crops and about following a healthy diet, and through her community co-op program, she’s teaching others to do the same.
Eating a diet rich in fresh produce, like Jainaba Jobarteh does, can help you lead a happier, healthier life. The benefits below are just some of many of adding more produce to your meals, even if yours isn’t straight from the garden:
· Healthy Skin and Bones
Eating a diet rich in veggies can hydrate your skin, provide a number of phytonutrients to guard against stress-related cell damage, and improve your bone health with highly-bioavailable vitamins and minerals.
· Weight Loss
Vegetables contain high amounts of insoluble and soluble fiber, which adds bulk to your stool and helps slow digestion. This helps you feel full for longer, aiding in weight management, while keeping your insides happy. Plus, a meal high in fruits and vegetables will generally be lower-calorie than a produce-free meal, further assisting with weigh management.
Unless you’re growing your veggies yourself, as Jainaba Jobarteh does, buy organic produce whenever possible and don’t forget to wash everything before you eat it.
