The colors in fruits + vegetables reflect what nutrients they contain. Eating a colorful diet ensures you're getting a wide variety of nutrients, each with powerful healing properties.
For example, many people know that carrots are good for eyesight. The orange color of carrots comes from beta-carotene, the nutrient that helps keep your vision sharp. Dark green vegetables like kale and broccoli are the most nutrient dense and are excellent for detoxifying and reducing inflammation.
I love this concept because rather than memorizing every nutrient in every food, you can focus on creating beautiful, colorful meals, knowing that good nutrition comes naturally.
