Eat RAINBOW Colour Food!

We shared an article on the effect of clothing's colours on your mood and perception, and we also shared why there is a need to consume various colour of food.

To complement the previous issue, here are some of the summary version of the benefit of eating various types(colours) food! Sharing the article from Mindbodygreen, here are the overview of the benefit of the colourful food! For detailed version, check on the following colour:
(featuring BlueWhiteRedYellowGreenOrange)
Luscious tomatoes, sweet strawberries, crisp red peppers and spicy red cayenne peppers are just some of the foods in this fiery color. And they really pack a vitamin punch: Most red foods (especially tomatoes and peppers) are bursting with vitamin C, which supports the immune system and heart health while encouraging collagen production. You’ll also get some vitamin A, which helps support our immune system and with night vision; lycopene, an antioxidant that can fight skin aging; beta-carotene for skin protection. There’s also fiber, which will keep your digestive tract running smoothly. 

Tangerines, carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, peaches, cantaloupes guavas, papayas, mangoes, apricots and (of course) oranges provide myriad health benefits — like supporting a healthy heart. And the nutrients you’ll get from them are manifold: beta-carotene and, of course, vitamins C and A. 

Nibble on bananas, lemons, yellow peppers, pineapples, corn and summer squash are just some of the fruits and vegetables for a blast of antioxidants, beta-carotene and vitamin C. Your digestive tract, skin, and the rest of your body will love you for it! 

You’d have to try really, really hard to avoid finding green foods at the market: Kale, collards, cucumbers, spinach, romaine, peas, honeydew, limes, green peppers, zucchini — the list is long! And that’s a good thing, because these tasty foods contain so much goodness that it’s hard to know where to begin. How about better looking skin and hair? More iron? Oh, and they’re all high in fiber, which can help keep your gut feeling great, as well as beta-carotene. 

Poor blue and indigo. They really got short-changed by Mother Nature. With the exceptions of blueberries and blue corn, there just aren’t many naturally occurring blue foods. (And no, that blue frosting on Bob from Accounting’s birthday cake doesn’t count.) So we decided to include violet in this grouping. And what a group it is: beets, grapes, eggplant, onions, and the aforementioned blueberries and corn are a sampling of the goodies that come in these shades. Most are good sources of vitamin K. You'll also find flavonoids in these, which act like antioxidants.
