The nonprofit, Produce for Better Health Foundation stated that "plant phytochemical may act as antioxidants, protect and regenerate essential nutrients". Joel Fuhrman, M.D. author of The End of Heart Disease: The Eat to Live Plan to Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, is also of the same opinion and he has scientific proof and case studies documenting the reversal and prevention of many medical conditions.
Some facts to consider are:
- Yellow and Orange Colors found in squash and tomatoes point to a higher level of vitamins C and A.
- Dark Green Leafy Greens and Cabbages are filled with chlorophyll that have detoxifying properties.
- Red Bell Peppers have lycopene associated with lowering the risk of blood pressure, and breast cancers.
- The colors of Purple and Blue found in radicchio, red cabbage and eggplant deliver vitamins C and K. The anthocyanin that create the color are powerful heart-healthy antioxidants.
So try one new vegetable dish a week and eat what tastes good, not what they say is good for whatever ailment alone. Because some days we crave something sweet like carrots and another time we want something bitter or tart. your body will tell you what you need.
So listen to your body and eat to live.
