Eating the rainbow is filled with a pot of gold benefits!
Red foods contain Lycopene, an antioxidant known to maintain heart health. Examples: strawberries, raspberries.

Orange foods are rich in beta carotene and lutein, which help maintain healthy eye function. Examples: carrots, pumpkins.

Yellow foods contain fiber, iron, potassium, and folate, as well as other nutrients that help with the heart, skin, eyes, bones, digestion, and immune system. Examples: Golden beets (great for kidney health when juiced), yellow dock (eliminates toxins, improves blood health), and dandelion (helps with indigestion and weight control!).
