Many people worry about eating the right meals. With so many guides and diets out there it can be easy to get lost in what is a healthy meal. The American Heart Association has come up with a simple solution – to eat meals that have a variety of colors. Certain foods have certain nutrients, and you’re most likely to get the proper blend of nutrients if you make sure that all the colors of the rainbow are present in the meals you eat in the week.
- On this iconic day, and throughout the entire month of November, the association wants to remind everyone that by adding more color to meals through fruits and vegetables, people can take simple yet significant steps to a more vibrant, healthier, longer life.
- In an effort to improve the diet quality of 55 million Americans, the association’s +color campaign, which launched in September with national sponsor SUBWAY® restaurants and national recipe host, Fresh Avocados – Love One Today®, is educating consumers on fruits and vegetables and the benefits each has to one’s health.
- Fruits and vegetables typically have more nutrients with fewer calories than other less-healthy food choices.
