Lose Weight WITHOUT Dieting: Tip #86: Eat Meals with a Variety of Colors

I bet you never thought of this one! The next time you eat dinner, take a look at your plate. Is it a panoply of bright colors? Or does it consist of a dull monochromatic arrangement? If your meals tend to resemble the latter, you may not be getting the nutrition necessary to lead a healthy life. Foods like tomatoes and beets (red), broccoli, asparagus and spinach (green), corn and squash (yellow), oranges and sweet potatoes (orange), cauliflower and onions (white), and eggplant and blueberries (blue/purple) offer a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are also nutrient-dense meaning they provide great nutritive value at a low caloric cost. So make sure your meals have a variety of colors to ensure you are eating healthfully.
