Think colour in the produce aisle
Of course we all grew up with the words of our mother “eat your vegetables!” ringing in our ears.
For some of us that advice stuck and for some of us it didn’t, but everyone agrees that vegetables are good for you. So how do you know what vegetables are best. Remember the cardinal rule for produce shopping: more colour equals more nutrients, generally. Examples include carrots and sweet potatoes, both bright orange and both great sources of vitamin A and potassium, or red, orange and yellow peppers, and strawberries, bright in colour and full of vitamin C.
So a good rule of thumb: if you fill your shopping trolley with a variety of differently coloured fresh produce, you’ll be getting a nice variety of important nutrients as well.
