A colorful grocery cart can lead to a healthy body. The rich color of fruits and vegetables represent a wide variety of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Phytochemicals are what protect plants and give them their vibrant hues. These same phytochemicals provide us similar protection when we eat them, and can help with disease prevention and treatment.
This week, I will add a splash of color to my cart. I will incorporate produce of all shades (including white, tan, black and brown) to keep my meals exciting and healthy.
