What do I mean when I recommend you eat the colours of the rainbow? Look around and you will see a vast array of colours when it comes to fruits and vegetables. From red to blue to green to yellow to purple to everything in between (rainbow anyone?). But what ‘makes’ our food so naturally colourful? And do different colours have different health benefits? (Hint – yes they do!)
So let me dive in and give you some important reasons why eating the colors of the rainbow can make you healthier and happier.
It’s all down to compounds called phytochemicals. Phytochemicals are responsible for the distinctive colours and smells of our fruits and vegetables, and there are over 4,000 of them! That’s of course a lot.
Based on the different compounds fruit and vegetables contain, they fall into five main colour categories:
Each colour category above has different health benefits due to the different phytochemicals they contain. So by choosing to eat the colours of the rainbow, otherwise known as a ‘rainbow’ diet, you can be sure you’re getting the maximum benefit from the food you eat.
Below you’ll find a snapshot of the various benefits of each colour:
One easy way to eat the colours of the rainbow regulary is to choose a colour each time you go grocery shopping. Simply add one extra item to your basket from the colour group of your choice. Over a month you’ll be surprised at how many colours of the rainbow your eating, and I know you’re body will love you for it.
