Mother Nature has given us beautiful fruits and vegetables in all colors of the rainbow. These vibrant fruits and vegetables can help promote a healthy life while tasting delicious too! The deeper the color in most fruits and vegetables shows they are healthy and full of micronutrients. Eating all colors of the rainbow has many healthy benefits including: detoxing, reducing inflammation and reducing cholesterol!
