Add color to your meal

Colors don’t just make you happy, they can make you healthy.

Today, be mindful of what’s on your plate. The best way to get all of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need is to eat a variety of colors – beets, cherries, raspberries, pink grapefruit, plums, bananas – they all count.

If you don’t like a certain food, try a different one. www.Heart.org/addcolor has an entire chart to choose from.

So, for tonight’s meal, add an orange to a green salad or throw red peppers into brown rice. Your body will thank you.
