Food just like life is vibrant and colorful! From fresh bright green peas to earthy jicama, foods comes in all colors. For a healthy diet it is important to try to eat a variety of foods and challenging yourself to eat fruits, vegetables, and ingredients of different colors can do just that! This automatically ensures that you eat a valuable mix of fruits, vegetables, proteins and fats. Also try experimenting with new spices which can help round off a “healthy diet”. This way you supply our body with all the important vitamins, secondary plant substances, mineral nutrients, micro- and macronutrients it needs to thrive.
