Colors of Health
Fruits and veggies come in terrific colors and flavors, but their real beauty lies in what's inside. Fruits and vegetables are great sources of many vitamins, minerals and other natural substances that may help protect you from chronic diseases.
By eating a more "colorful" diet, we can better achieve a balanced intake of healthful food and benefit from better nutritional support. Eating fruits and vegetables of different colors gives your body a wide range of valuable nutrients, like fiber, folate, potassium, and vitamins A and C.
Some examples include green spinach, orange sweet potatoes, black beans, yellow corn, purple plums, red watermelon, or white onions. For more variety, try new fruits and vegetables regularly. What to know more, just visit "Eat 5 A Day" to learn more about all the healthy benefits.
