What Color is Your Food?
Do you really pay attention to whether or not you eat colorful and healthy food? Sometimes we stress eat and then consume foods that not only break down healthy cells in our bodies but cause us to gain weight that we do not want or need. Some "foods" that are available or no healthier than cardboard. The next time you reach for a snack or quick lunch pay attention to what you are actually eating. Has it been processed so thoroughly that there are no nutrients left? Choosing colorful foods (no dyes) will put you on the right path to eating healthier.
The more colorful the food, the higher the nutrients.
The nutrients in colorful foods are called phytochemicals or phytonutrients. A plate of colorful foods (natural, not artificial coloring) will provide your body with needed antioxidants that help to prevent cell damage.
Blueberries, raspberries, and whole-grain cereal provide valuable nutrients any time of the day, not just for breakfast.
Dark green and colorful vegetables are filled with nutritious anti-oxidants. Before you take that first bite, decide why you are eating and decide if what you are eating is actually good for you.
