Eat the Rainbow

Eating your colourful fruits and vegetables has tons of benefits to your health. Fruits and vegetables have a plethora of vitamins and minerals that your body needs to function. For e.g. green leafy vegetables are high in folic acid (think of foliage), iron, and magnesium, red and orange fruits and vegetables are high in carotenoids like vitamin A and lycopene that are great for the eyes and skin, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and brussel sprouts have anti-cancerous and hormone-balancing compounds. The colour pigments that fruits and vegetables have confer different types of antioxidant effects, so it becomes important to eat a lot of different colours to improve and maintain good health.

Easy ways to get your fruits and veggies is by incorporating them into your dishes, making smoothies, and having them as salads. Sometimes, you have to try the fruits and vegetables that you think you don't like in a different way to actually enjoy them. Also, our taste buds change every few years, so if you didn't like asparagus 7 years ago, maybe it's time to give it a try again!

For now, you can start with an easy colourful kale salad recipe that is always a hit with my family and friends.
