What is a rainbow salad?
Nature’s naturally colored plant foods, with their vibrant red, orange, yellow, green, and other bright colors, contain phytonutrients. These are a class of active plant chemicals that offer above and beyond the basic vitamins and minerals, fats, proteins, and carbs to help supercharge your health.
Phytonutrients are said to protect the body from a wide array of illnesses and modern diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and other serious health issues. Also, some enhance immunity, are anti-inflammatory, and work as a potent antioxidant to help repair DNA. Another plus to creating a diet around colorful vegetables, many are fat-burning and anti-aging powerhouses.
