This was taken from the The Good Medicine Website:

One simple way to eat more healthfully is to add more color to your plate. Did you know that the more naturally colorful your meal is, the more likely it is to have an abundance of carotenoids, as well as other healthy nutrients? Carotenoids are the pigments that give fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, sweet potatoes, and tomatoes, their bright colors. Beta-carotene, lycopene, and lutein are all different varieties of carotenoids that act as antioxidants with strong anti-cancer properties. The chart below shows the cancer-fighting and immune-boosting power of different
hued foods.

Truly amazing (not really) how science continually proves what many have known for years – eat healthy whole foods with lot’s of variety!  The Asian cultures have done this for centuries!
