    researchers analyzed health data and diet reports from more than 135,000 people across five continents who were followed for about seven years. When the researchers compared how much fruit, vegetables, and legumes people ate with mortality rates, they found that those who reported eating three to four combined servings a day were 22% less likely to die during the study compared to those who reported eating less than one serving a day.

    Vegetables contain an impressive amount of nutrients.

    Moreover, they are linked to a lower risk of many diseases, including diabetes, obesity, heart disease and some cancers. Eating enough servings of vegetables each day may even help prevent premature death.

    Regarding how many servings of veggies you should eat, most studies note the greatest benefits when people eat 3–4 portions per day.

    You can eat your veggies in a variety of forms — including store-bought, frozen, canned or juiced — though freshly picked, ripe vegetables are still the best option.

    vegetables should be present at every meal, fruits can be in the morning (since they contain a large amount of fructose)

    fruit juice isn't good at all since the fiber is removed due the membrane separation and the fructose will be assimilated all at once in the liver.
