You don’t dress in one color. Your apartment isn’t one shade of beige. Why should your diet be any different?
To be your healthiest, think back to grammar school art class and good ol’ ROYGBIV: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, a.k.a. the colors of the rainbow. Nature has been kind enough to give us fruits and vegetables in all these colors, and we should be eating foods in these beautiful hues to stay healthy and balanced.
As good as each color group is on its own, none of them provide all the vitamins and minerals we need to be our best. What’s great about greens isn’t necessarily all there in reds or yellows, and vice versa.
