All foods are not created equal. As we close out Nutrition Month, here’s your reminder to eat the rainbow—consume a variety of colorful foods each day to receive the nutrients and vitamins your body needs to be healthy! Here are some pointers from Gina Harvey, wellness educator:

Orange and yellow foods like oranges and bananas are powerful to support your vision, immune system, and nervous system.

Green foods like broccoli and spinach can help reduce your risk of diabetes and heart disease.

Red foods, like tomatoes and berries can improve your circulation.

Blue and purple foods, like blueberries, grapes, and purple cabbage are all high in antioxidants and helps fight cancer.

White foods or root vegetables like potatoes and turnips are full of nutrients and high in fiber.

Enjoy your food, add some color, and make every bite count! Watch the full “Live Well with Gina” here.
