Let’s be honest: with all of the competing health guidelines and trendy diet plans out there, it can be confusing to figure out what “eating healthy” really means. But one thing you can be sure of is that eating more fruits and vegetables is an always healthy choice.
If you aren’t quite sure which fruits and vegetables to pick, here’s an easy rule of thumb: make sure you are eating the rainbow (and no, I don’t mean the candy). Fruits and vegetables naturally come in a variety of bright, vibrant colors—and those colors are a sign of rich nutrients with powerful health benefits.
Naturally colorful foods tend to be nutrient-dense superfoods that can help you to keep your diet full of healthy choices. From red tomatoes to deep blue berries to purple cabbage, there are plenty of options to fill your plate with the colors of the rainbow.
