Recommendations for intake of fruits and vegetables include eating a variety of both.  Using color as a guide is a good way to help achieve variety in the diet.  Moderately active women should consume 3 ½ to 4 ½ cups total of fruits and vegetables per day.  It is fine to eat them raw or cooked, and including both helps add interest.  Cooking in different ways also adds interest – using spices, making curry or stir-fry, grilling etc. Oils and other cooking fats add extra calories, and so should be used in small amounts.  Fruits and vegetables have many health benefits, although I am not aware of any research that shows that fruits and vegetables improve the glow of your skin.  There are many factors related to skin health and eating foods rich in vitamins and minerals is sure to help.
