Fruits and vegetables have been an essential part of our diet, perhaps ever since time began. They give color and balance to our dishes, and also provide the bulk of the vitamins that we need in everyday life. We can do a lot to our fruits and vegetables — we eat them raw or cooked, chilled and frozen, and combine them with other fruits and vegetables in a variety of creative and amazing ways. We also drink them in juices or make smoothies out of them, and we can use them in other ways such as for seasoning for other foods. Some fruits are even used for household purposes other than cooking and eating.
