Eat Colors

Updated: Dec 28, 2019

A fun way to introduce healthy foods to children or adults is to eat colors! Choose one a day or try to eat as many as you can...making a game of it will bring out awareness and create least resistance in eating foods we might not know about or care for. Foods of the rainbow consist of all vitamins, minerals and nutrients that we need. Red foods contain antioxidants, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, manganese and fiber. Orange foods contain Vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, selenium and copper. Foods rich in the color yellow promote the body's production of collagen and anti-aging. Yellow foods also play a crucial role in balancing the body's Ph level. Holistic practitioners from are able to provide information and diet recommendations to support Ph Levels. Green foods supply rich amounts antioxidants, minerals, folate, flavonoids, chlorophyll, lutein, which increase blood-cell production, improves oxygenation, degeneration and circulation. Blue, Purple (even some dark Red) foods contain anthocyanin and resveratrol which not only protect the immune system they tend to lower and dampen the bodies responses such as inflammation and/or blood pressure. So on a rainy day have fun with a rainbow of food.
