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 🤗!
