Red: Get your reds from beets, strawberries, red onion, cranberries, tomatoes, radishes, and red grapefruit. They promote heart health with phytochemicals lycopene and anthocyanin. These also lower cancer risk and increase memory function.
White/Tan/Brown: White foods such as bananas, cauliflower, mushrooms, potatoes, brown pears, garlic, and turnips are healthy, contrary to recent fad diet suggestions and promote good cholesterol.
Green: Rich in antioxidants and the phytochemical lutein and indoles, greens encourage vision health and strong bones and teeth. They also reduce cancer risk. Try to eat celery, spinach, green apples, avocado, green cabbage, okra, honeydew, peas, or zucchini in every meal.
Blue/Purple: Stay youthful with figs, blueberries, purple grapes, plums, eggplant, raisins, and other blue and purple fruits and veggies. The phytochemicals anthocyanin and penolics in these foods also play a role inn memory function and urinary tract health and reduce cancer risk.
Orange/Yellow: some of the most powerful antioxidants, especially vitamin C, are in this group. Support your immune system and vision with cantaloupe, pumpkin, corn, oranges, sweet potatoes, mangoes, and yellow squash.
