Health Benefits Of Eating Colourful Foods

We are all familiar with the food pyramid but have you heard of the food rainbow?

There are many health benefits of eating colouful foods and nature has done all the hard work for us.

Nature has devised a colourful way to emphasize the nutrients in foods. Different colors indicate different nutrient profiles. For instance, the anthocyanins that turn blueberries blue can also keep your mind sharp, the lycopene that turns watermelon and tomatoes red may also help protect against prostate and breast cancers.

Beta carotene that makes carrots and sweet potatoes orange can help keep your bones strong, your eyes healthy and boost your immune system
