One of the best ways to help make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need to nourish your whole body is by eating a wide variety of plants in every color of the rainbow.
A plant’s color can help clue you in to the types of phytonutrients it contains — and each supports health in different ways.
Some anthocyanins, in red, purple, and blue plants like sweet cherries, blackberries, and raspberries, can help with exercise-induced muscle soreness.
One of the simplest ways to add more colorfully diverse plants to your diet is by loading up your morning smoothie with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, herbs, spices, seeds, and nuts.
Maybe you already add a banana or berries. But have you considered sweet potato, oats, beets, beans, or zucchini?!
