Not only is a colorful plate of food beautiful to look at it, there are health and skin benefits for eating a “rainbow” of food!
Fruits and vegetables get their colors (and other unique characteristics like smell, texture, etc) from various phytochemicals. Each phytochemical has its own set of nutrients. Since the phytochemicals that make something red are different from the phytochemicals that make something green, the nutrients, and health benfits, of those two plants are going to be different. In other words, you need to eat different colored foods in order to get different vitamins and minerals!
We came across this amazing chart which separates food by color. In each section you will see which vitamins and minerals correspond to which foods as well as which body parts benefit from those foods! Taste the Rainbow and you’ll be glowing way before the season turns to summer!
You can actually buy a print of this chart, frame it, and hang it in your kitchen! What could be a better piece of art than one that keeps you healthy?! Find out more about this chart and how to get one HERE.
