Choosing Stronger Colors in your Food

Phytonutrients are found in vegetables, fruits, spices. They give the color and the stronger the color is, the more nutrients it’s going to have, says Carla Araya, Registered Dietitian with Miami Cancer Institute.

Purple food has antioxidants, and they have cancer-fighter properties. Fruits and vegetables like grapes, berries and purple cabbage, among others, have a lot of anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory substances, and protect brain and cells. “The more variety and the more colors are on a plate, the better it is,” she says.

The expert also advises avoiding sugar, because it contributes with obesity and it’s empty calories.
