Do You Know the Benefits of Eating Color?

Besides the fact that everyone likes to see a colorful dish, that dish may also be good for you. It is great, the food looks appealing, but even greater when that food is a healthy meal.

healthy snack ideas


An eating tip that I have observed is that several of the culinary dishes are quite colorful, healthy, and are quite pleasurable to your palate.

Diet Color

Have you given any thought to what colors your diet consist of? You might be surprised at the results.
I know personally that my diet does consist of red (strawberries, watermelon), green (greens, peas, green beans) and yellow (bananas). I love to make pineapple and banana smoothies. They are so delightful. According to nytimes, fruit and vegetables are the closes of foods that act like a fountain of youth. I believe that too. Fruits and vegetables are powerful protection against diseases.


Snacks

I love to snack on raw carrots. Carrots are packed with vitamin A for the eyes. Also, this is a great way to eat fiber. In the article http://anointedtoday.blogspot.com/2015/06/are-you-giving-healthy-food-choices-to.html, I talk about the importance of variety in your children's diet.



Mini Meals

According to Rebecca Reeves, Dr.PH,RD at webmd.com, people who eat 4-5 meals or snacks per day are able to control their appetite and weight better. That does make sense. I recall a friend of mine at one time was only eating 1 apple a day, because of her fear of getting fat. Little did she know that by eating only 1 apple she was causing her metabolism to slow down and possibly causing more harm than good. Although I know there are those that fast, but I could not imagine only eating an apple a day.
