Adding Color to your Diet

If changing your eating habits sits at the top of your 2020 resolutions list, take this good advice from the American Heart Association. “Eating healthy doesn’t mean depriving yourself of delicious food. It’s about adding; adding color, to your snacks, your meals, your life, with fruits and vegetables.

  • The best way to get all of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients you need is to eat a variety of colorful fruits and veggies. (There are five main color groups – Red & Pink, Blue & Purple, Green, Yellow & Orange, White and Brown.)
  • All forms of fruits and veggies – fresh, frozen, canned, dried – can be good choices.
  • They add vitamins and nutrients. They add health benefits. They add flavor and fun. They can spice up a meal and maybe even the conversation around it.

Bottom line: Eat more Color! By adding just one more cup of fruits and vegetables a day, you can take a simple but powerful step to a healthier, longer life.”
