Eat Your Colors!
At PPN, we are strongly aware that colorful foods play an important role in our lives. The influence of color is shown in many things such as colorful birds attracting a mate, to marketing tools used in everyday ads or products to attract certain consumers.
We as a species, are influenced by colors on a daily basis, wether we recognize it or not. Mother Nature is guilty of using this colorful technique to lead us to healthier lives. Next time you go to the grocery store, just look across the produce department. There is a full spectrum of colors with no labels necessary. As for the inside isles, with all of the processed foods, the color you will notice all comes from the labels and packaging that is used to try to sway you to purchase that boring and colorless product that comes inside. Majority of the time, the colorful boxes will do you no good when it comes to your health. The real benefit comes from eating the colors you see in fruits or vegetables.
Fruits and vegetables are attractive for a reason, they contain the necessary nutrients we need for optimal living. Eating a variety of fruits and vegetables will maximize the body’s ability to heal daily and prevent against all forms of diseases and cancers. They also aid in immune function, skin elasticity, energy levels, inflammation, aging, and many more. Every color has a unique function that supports optimal health.
