Eat a rainbow daily
Nutritionists recommend eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables daily to get a variety of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, trace phytonutrients, and polyphenols.
It's easy to get yellow-orange tropical or citrus fruits, and yellow peppers or orange carrots for the vegetables.
Red fruits include apples or strawberries, and for vegetables, peppers or tomato products are usually available.
Blue is more difficult, but fresh or frozen berries are useful in a variety of recipes.
Purple fruits include plums and berries. Purple veggies used to be limited to eggplant, but now purple potatoes and purple carrots have hit many markets.
Green fruits include green seedless grapes and apples, while there is an abundance of dark leafy greens to use in cooking and fresh salads, even if you have to grow your own in pots.
Remember, 9 servings daily is not difficult when you realize each serving is only a 1/2 cup in size.
This website supports adding the recommended 9 (1/2 cup) servings of fruits and vegetables to your healthy lifestyle, along with green tea (if appropriate).
