For years, dieticians and nutritionists have been telling the American public that they should “eat the rainbow” for optimal health. But what does that mean, exactly?
Well, quite simply it means you should include a wide variety of natural foods of various colors in your everyday diet. Filling your plate with fruits and veggies of all colors of the rainbow is the perfect way to do this. Adding a wide array of fruits and veggies to your diet will not only support your body’s essential functions, but you’ll also feel healthier and more energized. And, as an added bonus, when you eat more natural food, you’re less likely to reach for junk food and processed food!
The Power of Purple
Vegetables come in many different and beautiful colors, but purple veggies offer our bodies something extra-special, indeed. The family of indigo and purple fruits and vegetables contain powerful nutrition you don’t want to miss in your diet.
For instance, purple fruits and veggies:
- Lower your cancer risk
- Promote good heart health
- Aid in proper digestion
- Boost urinary tract health
- Lower blood pressure
- Increase memory
- Contribute to overall brain health
Purple foods are a real nutritional powerhouse! The secret: Antioxidants. Purple foods are simply jam-packed with antioxidants that help heal your body, correct damaged cells, and prevent the development of many chronic diseases. Some purple vegetables, like the Indigo Rose tomato, are also filled with special natural compounds called flavonoids. Flavonoids are a special group of nutrients that can help heal your body and prevent diabetes and heart disease. Your diet shouldn’t be without purple fruits and veggies – in fact, you should eat as much purple as possible!
