Just Life| Eat a Rainbow Today

It has been said that to have a long & healthy life, one should choose to eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables.

 Lets see what each color represents:

  • Red fruits and vegetables:  improve your heart and blood health. Eat Tomatoes, Red bell peppers, Red apples and Watermelon.

  • Orange fruits and vegetables: prevent cancer. Eat Oranges, Yams, and Cantaloupes.
Cantaloupe and Rosewater and sugar. A staple of Persian Table.
  • Yellow fruits and vegetables: help with vision, your digestive system, and your immune system. Eat Pears, Bananas, Mangoes, and Pineapple.

  • Green fruits and vegetables: have powerful detoxers to fight the free radicals in your body. Eat Kale, Broccoli, and cucumber. These darn free radicals pump things into your body and can cause major havoc.

  • Blue fruits and vegetables: improve the absorption of minerals in your body and have power anti-oxidants. So eat Blueberries.

  • White fruits and vegetables: reduce your cancer risk and activate the natural killers in your body to protect you. So eat Garlic, Mushrooms, Cauliflower, and White Onion.

So you see, we should all eat a rainbow for a healthier life.
