|You need to always make sure to include varied colors of produce in your daily diet. This is because each different color group of produce provides your mouth with a different set of nutritional options.
Some produce colors provide higher vitamins than others, while other produce colors provide your body with a detoxifying effect. The more variations you can include on a daily basis, the healthier every part of your body has the potential to be.
Getting a Full Variety of Colors Into Your Daily Diet
There are several varieties that you can pick from for each color of the rainbow in terms of produce. This is a great way to vary your nutritional intake. Consider red produce. You have the option of tomatoes, rhubarb, beets, strawberries, and apples. For orange produce, you can opt for oranges, carrots, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin. If you need yellow produce, then you can go with peppers, beets, tomatoes, and rutabagas.
There are tons of options when it comes to greens, such as spinach, celery, cabbage, and peas. When it comes to blue produce, you can opt for blueberries, grapes, and olives. There are also purple options, such as eggplants, cabbage, endive, and carrots.
Combine your favorite produce options from each color group, and increase the nutrition of each meal you have. The more colors you can cover each day, the more varied your nutrients are. By increasing your nutritional intake, your mouth reaps the benefits while eating, and the rest of your body reaps the benefits during digestion.
