Eating the Rainbow:
Why orange and yellow foods are easy add-ons for a colorful diet
Last week, we talked about why red foods (containing the phytonutrients lycopene and anthocyanins) are beneficial to overall health. This week, we’ll talk about fruits and veggies with hues of yellow and orange – colors that studies support to be packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and other health-boosting components.
Most yellow and orange foods are packed with vitamins (specifically Vitamin A which is great for eye health!) and trace minerals like manganese, which helps the body process fat and carbohydrates from the other foods you enjoy.
Yellow and orange foods that are great to include into your diet:
Yellow apples, Asian pears, apricots, bell peppers, cantaloupe, carrots, mango, nectarines, oranges, papaya, persimmons, pumpkin, squash, sweet potato, banana, ginger root, lemon, pineapple, turmeric, tams, tangerine, starfruit, corn, golden beets, and summer squash.
