Health & Wellness Article
Color your plate for optimal health
A diet rich in fruits and vegetables offers more health benefits than you can count on both hands, including lower blood pressure, reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, cancer prevention, lower risk of obesity and digestive problems, and improved blood sugar levels. Even more, eating the daily recommended doses of fruits and veggies will help you feel full longer and keep your appetite in check.
“There are so many people who rely on supplements and vitamins when we should be able to get most of what we need from our food,” says registered nurse and nutrition advocate Kristin Woodruff. “Make sure you’re getting as many colors on your plate as possible. That is the original multivitamin.”
While the research surrounding the effects of color on health is ongoing, here’s a look at the potential health benefits of tasting the rainbow with some help from Dr. David Heber, author of What Color is your Diet?
