Did you know that the color of the fruit or vegetable you are eating can indicate some of the nutrients/minerals it contains? Let’s take a look at the largest color category first. A sampling of the largest color group includes the following Green Fruits and Vegetables:

Think back to high school biology…what do you recall is one of the first things that green plants contain? Know? Chlorophyll. Although it isn’t as glorified as some of the other nutrients, chlorophyll has a RAINBOW of health benefits. In fact, it has so many that instead of listing them all, I’ll just refer to a website that lists their many benefits. http://beyourowndoctornow.blogspot.com/2009/07/benefits-of-chlorophyll.html

Green veggies and fruits also contain fiber, lutein, zeaxanthin, calcium, folate, vitamin C, calcium, and Beta-carotene. The nutrients found in these vegetables reduce cancer risks, lower blood pressure and LDL cholesterol levels, normalize digestion, support vision, fight harmful free-radicals, and boost immune system activity.

For a full list of the nutrients of each green fruit/veggie refer to: http://www.everynutrient.com/vegetable-nutrition-facts.html .

As always, strive to get a serving each of fruits and veggies with each meal.
