Food is energy. Every bite of food that we take is converted into a symphony of chemical substances that can either serve us by promoting and supporting our well-being, or work against us by promoting inflammation and, ultimately, disease.
Summertime is a wonderful season to pack in a rainbow of antioxidant-rich foods to boost our health, cool us off, and ultimately orchestrate an amazing energetic interchange at the most basic cellular level.
Eating the rainbow provides cellular protection, promotes DNA health, improves immunity, supports brain health, decreases inflammation, protects our hearts and combats cancer.
Here are some of the best fruits and veggies to pick up at your local farmers market or grocery store to boost your energy and keep you healthy and vibrant:
Pomegranates, cherries, bell peppers, tomatoes, strawberries, raspberries, radishes.
Tangerines, oranges, mango, papaya, cantaloupe, carrots.
Banana, pineapple, lemon, corn.
Asparagus, avocado, cucumbers, celery, greens, broccoli, cabbage, limes.
Blackberries, blueberries, purple cauliflower, figs, grapes, cabbage.
Onions, garlic, shallots, jicama.
