Can I get a golf clap for macronutrients, and a huge ROAR for micronutrients? It’s time to put nutrition labels in their place and spread the word that they don’t tell the complete story.
Macronutrients include fats, carbohydrates and proteins. These are the bulk of what make up the traditional nutrition label.
Micronutrients include vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. You probably won't find a nutrition label that measures the amount of phytochemicals that a meal has.
Luckily for us, we can tell by using only our eyes if a particular food is abundant in phytochemicals by how colorful it is. Compounds that make up phytochemicals are the same compounds that make our fruits and veggies colorful. The more colorful our meals, the more thriving, energetic, glowing and radiant we will be.
It’s time to make our food choices based more on nutrient density and less on calorie counting.
