Eat with color to maximize your health benefits. So what does that really mean? Colors are associated with different benefits and disease preventions. As we see in the diagram, eating “white” foods strengthens the immune system. Eating “green” foods purifies with detoxification. Eating “red” foods improves our heart health. Eating “yellow” fortifies our skin’s elasticity and helps combat the aging process. Eating “orange” foods helps to prevent cancer. Eating “purple” foods increases our longevity. Fill your shopping carts with color for healthy living.
