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.

HOW TO STORE ‘EM Apples do best in cold storage; at room temperature they quickly become mealy. Keep them in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 weeks. Wash apples when you’re ready to use them. HOW TO EAT ‘EM Try apples in all types of salad: Apple and Fennel Salad with Parmesan: Toss thinly sliced apples and fennel with chopped fresh parsley, fresh lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Top with shaved Parmesan. APPLES Cortland: Sweet and tender American variety Season: October to January Best for: Applesauce …
