Eat rainbow!

Eat rainbow! 😋
Eating all the colours of the rainbow can help boost brain health and reduce the risk of heart disease 😃🧠
:::
With the new year we’ve got new researches, new polls and new rankings 📈 but in ‘Top Diets’ list we don’t see anything new – Mediterranean diet has been chosen best diet, again! 😎
:::
Mediterranean diet contains a lot of fruit 🍊🍍🍌🫐, vegetables 🍆🥦🍅🥕 and healthy fats such as extra virgin olive oil but it’s not only healthy…it’s colorful! And that’s another ‘healthy’ aspect of it! 😉
:::
The more color you eat the more vital and nutritious it is 🤗.
➡️ “If we’re missing a colour of the rainbow, we may be missing a function of that food,” says Deanna Minich, functional nutritionist at the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon.
:::
This is because plant foods contain thousands of natural compounds called phytonutrients, including carotenoids and flavonoids, which have anti-inflammatory benefits. And different coloured plants come with different benefits 😃.
:::
💙💜 Blue and purple foods, such as blueberries 🫐, have a high content of the plant pigment anthocyanin, which has been linked to lowering the risk of heart disease and type two diabetes 😀.
:::
💛 Flavones, which give foods a yellow colour, may reduce the risk of heart disease ☺️.
:::
🧡 Research has found that orange juice is associated with a lower risk of cognitive decline 😄.
:::
Eating a variety of colours could mean we eat more fruit and vegetables overall 😃. One study found that prompting people to eat a colourful meal increased their consumption of healthy food as we need to add more and more vegetables to make it colorful 🤗!
