Eating a rainbow - Purple Please!

Color your way to health. Research shows that colorful veggies & fruit contain essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytochemicals that your body needs to promote health. 

By eating fruits and vegetables of a variety of different colors, one can get the best all-around health benefits.  The processed foods that we so commonly eat, can never compare to the health benefits provided by the fiber, vitamins and enzymes built right into fruits and vegetables.

Blue and purple fruits and vegetables contain nutrients which include lutein, zeaxanthin, resveratrol, vitamin C, fiber, flavonoids, ellagic acid, and quercetin. These nutrients support retinal health, lower LDL cholesterol, boost immune system activity, support healthy digestion, improve calcium and other mineral absorption, fight inflammation, reduce tumor growth, act as an anticarcinogens in the digestive tract, and limit the activity of cancer cells
