Good Afternoon and Happy Sunday!
I hope you are all having a great weekend. I was recently asked what one tip would you give someone to jumpstart their health. This is actually a tough question because there is SO many answers. But what I narrowed it down to was:
EAT THE RAINBOW- When you use the Rainbow as your nutritional guide you are ensuring that you are benefiting from a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are provided by each color group.
Eating all the five color groups each day is an easy way to stay health and feel your best.
RED: Heart Healthy and gives strength support to our joints.
ORANGE: Great source of Vitamin C and helps keep our eyes healthy.
YELLOW: GREAT for our skin and our digestive system.
GREEN: Strengthens our immune systems. Important for entire body.
PURPLE: Purple/blue foods are excellent for our BRAINS. Helps with memory and keeps some cancers at bay!
