What you get from these colors

When it comes to eating veggies, more is better! The health benefits of eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables are endless plus the fact that they help lower the risk of many diseases including type 2 diabetes. Adding veggies in your dishes will give you a sense of fullness and help keep your brain function sharp.



Here's a list of what you can benefit from these colorful vegetables. GREEN vegetables like spinach, green pepper, asparagus, broccoli, peas and green peas promote eye health and strong bones. They also help reduce risk of breast and colon cancers.







RED
pepper, red onion, radicchio, grape tomatoes and red cabbage can help improve heart health and sharpen memory. Like the green ones, they also help lower risk of some cancers and promote urinary tract health.






I'm sure you already know that the ORANGE varieties are good for your eyes. But they're not just good for that, carrots and sweet potatoes boost heart health and aid the immune system. Men who love eating them are less likely to have prostate cancer.

Great info. The prettier the colors the healthier the food. Great way to get kids to eat vegies is by promoting the pretty colors to them.

Thanks again! A person once told me that you won't get any nutrients from cabbage and bell peppers. And I thought, it's impossible that they don't contain anything, and they're one of my favorites. Thanks Ms. Liza. Now I know.
