Eat Like an Artist

Paint yourself as the picture of health by eating like an artist! Make your plate beautiful, with life-enhancing colors — eat as many colors in each meal and over the course of the day and week as you can — ​and when possible, eat fruits and vegetables whole, including the skin (wash first, of course)​.

Eating foods in shades of green, orange, yellow, purple and red  is a great way to ensure you are getting a variety of health benefits. Even pale-colored foods (white, yellow, pink) have health-promoting properties.

Why are they so good for you?

These brightly colored foods contain vitamins and other nutrients, as well as plant-based chemicals that help boost immunity and fight disease.  They're also rich in fiber.
