I was looking back at my posts and I really liked this info from @fastandfitfood #tbt #throwback #throwbackthursday
VARIETY: phytonutrients give fruits & vegetables their vibrant colors & supply antioxidants that act as our protection against free radicals/cell damage/disease. Eat a variety of different colors throughout your week to pick up the protection that each color (phytonutrient) has to offer: 🍎🍒🍓🍅🌶Red: memory function, urinary tract health, heart health, lowers risk of some cancers, prostate health. 🍌🍊🍋🍍🌽Yellow/Orange: healthy immune system, heart health, vision, lowers risk of some cancers. 🍆🍠🍇Blue/Purple: memory, urinary tract health, lowers risk of some cancers. 🍏🍐Green: strong bones & teeth, vision health, lowers risk of some cancers. ▫️White: heart health, maintain healthy cholesterol levels, lowers risk of some cancers. * Same with whole grains. Try different grains. Oats are high fiber and quinoa is higher in protein- so mix it up!
