Fresh fruits and vegetables all have at least one thing in common - they're colorful! That's why a plate of food that's all one bland color is no good. When you're trying to eat a healthy and balanced diet you want a plate that's covered in many different rich and vibrant colors, which is why we've put together this collection of easy healthy recipes.
These vivid colors can't be found in packaged and processed foods. In fact, the natural pigments that make our fruits and veggies so bright are just what makes 'em powerhouses when it comes to protecting our bodies from diseases. Research shows that the good-for-you element in our produce rainbow is a compound called a phytonutrient. Basically, that's just an organic part of a plant that's thought to promote good health. Sounds good to us!
We have a bunch of fresh and easy healthy recipes, but these are some of our favorites!
Here's some food for thought: the next time you're preparing a plate of food, try to incorporate at least three different colors. It's as simple as starting off with a green Wilted Spinach Salad, adding a main dish of pink Fresh Salmon Burgers, and paring it with a side of orange Baked Sweet Potato Fries. This way you can ensure you've got an array of tasty, nutritious options that'll keep you full and satisfied.
Eating healthy doesn't mean we have to sacrifice our quick and easy mantra. Nope, we've got tons of delicious options to "taste the rainbow" that'll fit your busy schedule. Eat up!
