Eating the Rainbow

This morning I was thinking back on the past week and whether or not I ate veggies and fruits in all the colors of the rainbow.  This was the list I came up:

Red: red peppers, tomatoes, raspberries

Orange: sweet potatoes, oranges, peaches, carrots

Yellow: bananas, yellow peppers, onions, mango

Green: spinach, lettuce, cucumber, avocado, asparagus, seaweed salad

Blue: Blueberries

Purple (Yeah I know it’s Indigo): eggplant, blackberries

 

Eating vegetables and fruits in a variety of colors is important to get the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) necessary for your:

 

-Metabolism

-Blood and bone health

-Antioxidant function

-Fluid and electrolyte balance

 

What about you?  Is your produce rainbow complete?
