Perhaps one of the main steps you need to take when adopting eating habits, aimed at improving your health, is to increase your consumption of raw vegetables. Among them are all green leafy vegetables, carrots, tomatoes, etc., which represent a rich source of minerals, vitamins, fiber and antioxidants.
