Green

Smart choices: Kiwi, broccoli, romaine lettuce, kale, spinach, brussels sprouts, cabbage, honeydew, avocados

Simple substitution: Use spinach in your salad instead of iceberg lettuce.

Health benefits: Green veggies contain lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids that protect eyesight and reduce your risk of developing macular degeneration, an incurable eye disease that can lead to blindness. Broccoli, cabbage, and other cruciferous vegetables contain compounds known as isothiocyanates, which may have anti-cancer properties.

Next:  Red

Among the most important nutritional information that I have seen and this includes South Beach Diet. In addition, the recipes are easy, but do require using fresh veg and fruit. This is not a impediment There is plenty of variety and can substitute for two or even three meals a day. Don't forget to add some roasted walnuts or pecans.

I injoy knowing they "why" to eat the colorful fruits and veggies. I am a member of the "Lose It" website and this is the second year we have had a challenge called "Eat the Rainbow" which advocates eating a fruit or veggie from five different color groups each day. I have posted the link to this article in the challenge conversation line. I hope it does not give you an overload of site visitors. Sorry if it does, but this is important in my opinion.
