An artist will tell you how important colors are. Blending them together will yield beautiful and sometimes unusual colors. Our bodies need nutrients that are blended together to provide coverage for different situations. A healthy body is one that receives a variety of nutrients that allow the body to do its work and remain healthy. These different nutrients come from plant life of different colors. You should be eating a wide variety of colors in your plant food, Here is a list of colors and what they help do for our bodies. There are some foods in each category but this is not an exhaustive list. Explore and try different foods in each color group.

  1. White – Strengthens our immune system – garlic & cauliflower

We started juicing yesterday. We bought a Breville and made our first juice from apples, celery, carrots and ginger. It was delicious. You get about 70% of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients from the food by juicing. So why not just eat the food whole? Mainly you can’t eat 2 apples, 2 stalks of celery and carrots and a chunk of ginger at one sitting. So you consume more but get 70%. Overall it is more nutrients than you normally would get. Juicing should use organic fruits and vegetables. Look at recipes and find those that use both fruits and vegetables. Juicing will help you lose weight, feel more alive and energetic and provide your body with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
