How Colorful Is Your Plate?

When I first made major changes to my diet I learned from Dr. Terry Wahls to eat, among other things, 3 cups of color per day.  She suggested the 3 cups be made up mostly of reds and blues like blueberries and raspberries.  She clearly was promoting the consumption of antioxidants to stop the internal “rusting” associated with oxidative damage.

I eat those 3 cups of color most days, but I have to admit that is far easier to accomplish during the bountiful summers here in the Pacific Northwest.  Below is a chart that reminds us of the importance of all the colors foods have to offer.
