Fruits and vegetables come in different colors that reflect the nutrients they contain: greens are rich in chlorophyll and phytonutrients, reds in antioxidants, etc.
A variety of fresh fruits and vegetables are necessary for a healthy body.
But what about black foods?
They haven’t exactly gotten the same press as greens. What makes foods black is anthocyanin, an antioxidant flavanoid pigment.
It has been linked to reducing cancer cell proliferation and improving visual acuity.
Don’t overlook these when making choices about incorporating all of the wonderful nutrients nature has to offer into your diet.
