Have you ever heard the phrase “eat more colors”? It’s referring to how eating a nutritious diet should look colorful. This is because foods have different benefits for our bodies and those benefits can generally be grouped together by color. Many of these foods are fruits and vegetables, however, there are some others included in the categories that you can add to make your meals more interesting. Things like cocoa, wine, and different spices like turmeric and chili powder can be an easy way to add some extra nutrients to your meal. All of these can have positive effects when included in your diet.
There is a lot of misinformation about healthy eating and what is (and is not) good for you. Fad diets and “super foods” have increased in popularity over the years, as have super detailed and complicated eating regimens. A lot of this information is spread through the internet and isn’t fact-checked for accuracy. The truth is more simple than all of this, you just have to ensure that you eat colorfully.
Eating colorfully doesn’t have to be difficult either–there are so many food options to create dishes that will not only ensure that you get your daily nutrients but also enjoy doing so. The main color groups are red, yellow, green, blue, and white. Each one contains different vitamins and nutrients and benefits your body in different ways.
