Hello from California!
I’m busy enjoying the warm weather in sunny California and juicing up a storm! I made this concoction a few days ago and dubbed it “Rainbow Juice”– because it’s made from all the colors of the rainbow.
I found that Rainbow Juice was not only more tasty than I could have ever imagined, but that I was also FULL OF ENERGY after I drank it! My achy knees didn’t even bother me that evening!
Now, do you know how important the color of fruits and vegetables are to your health?
They are vital!!
Yellow and orange fruits and vegetables are good for your digestive system. They contain carotenoids and bioflavonoids which act as antioxidants. They also help keep your skin looking healthy, heal wounds and make your bones strong.
Red fruits and vegetables are beneficial for your heart and fight cancer because their red color comes from lycopene. Lycopene is a pigment that acts as an antioxidant and protects your body from free radicals and heart disease.
Green fruits and vegetables contain lutein which keep your eyes healthy. Green foods also have potassium, folate, and vitamins C and K.
Purple foods have antioxidants and flavonoids which protect your heart and lengthen your life. They also improve your memory and assist in preventing cancer risks.
Eating and drinking a wide variety of colored fruits, fruit juices and vegetables will maximize your health–similar to the way a superfood would. Therefore Rainbow Juice is indeed a superfood!
