5 basic colors for a healthy life

Trough the past few years we’ve been so overflown with products that are labeled as BIO, ORGANIC, NATURAL, HEALTHY… We can choose from millions of recipes that are published for just about anything. We are becoming more and more aware of our health, and we should.

But sometimes I find myself a bit lost in all this “healthy mess” and don’t quite know how to incorporate it into our family daily routine, what should we eat more, what a little less…. So, when I heard about this easy advice that I will write about, it really made it easy for me to do so.

First, you know there are 5 basic color groups of vegetables, fruit and herbs, RED, YELLOW, GREEN, ORANGE and WHITE. 
And you can eat them by making a simple salad out of them, a soup or  smoothie, eat them raw for snacks or make desserts. Either way it will do.

If you eat these five color food-groups, you just can’t miss eating healthy every single day!

Red group represents vegetables like tomatoes and red pepper, and berries as fruit (strawberry, raspberry, currants, blueberry). you should eat it 3 times a day.

Yellow group represents citrus. Make a lemonade or juice once a day. Good for your health and fat burn.
Orange group represents veggies like pumpkin, carrots, sweet potato, and apricot as fruit. Have carrot snacks, or pumpkin soup, apricots are great fruit for the summer. You should eat orange food once a day.
Green group represents vegetables that we probably most often eat. Here are veggies like cabbage, kale, broccoli, sprouts, spinach, cauliflower. It’s a matter of your choice how to prepare it.. Smoothies, salads, soups, sauce, baked, cooked, raw.. As long as you eat it every day, two times a day.
 
White group represents onion, garlic, mushrooms and chives. Add them to your dish as spice. They are good for your immune system.
That’s it! Now you know what should be in your fridge and kitchen store at all times. Remember, this are just the basics. There’s plenty of variety of vegetables and fruit to eat. I just wanted to show you, how to systematically group your food and how often you should eat it.
