Eating the Rainbow is the easiest way to rapidly improve your health. Greens, Oranges, Yellows, Reds, Purples…You get the idea!
Consuming a colourful array of fruits and vegetables will provide your body with a unique blend of vital vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients which assist in warding off disease, contribute to a strong immune system and help to encourage weight loss.
Bold Colour = Powerful Antioxidants = Big Health Benefits
Red foods such as tomatoes, beetroots and guavas, high in lycopene, can keep your brain healthy and reduce your risk of developing certain types of cancer. Orange and yellow foods, such as sweet potatoes, carrots and citrus fruits, are high in carotenoids which can reduce your risk of respiratory disease, and contribute to a healthy immune system and a clear complexion.
Green foods such as avocados, kiwis and leafy greens (spinach, kale, broccoli etc.) are high in luetin and chlorophyll which can help protect against cell damage and maintain healthy eyesight 👀
Blue and purple foods such as blueberries, aubergines, and raisins, high in flavonoids and anthocyanidins, can prevent the destruction of collagen and reduce your risk of heart disease as well as age-related memory loss.
Prioritising the consumption of foods that are bright and colourful inevitably results in eating more fruits and vegetables, and since these are low in calories and high in fiber, you will feel more satiated despite eating fewer calories. This should, in turn, lead to a reduction in processed, unhealthy, calorie-dense but nutrient-sparse foods.
Nature is smart: colour is appealing and we are attracted to vibrant hues for a reason. Now, go chase that Rainbow!
