Health Tip: Add Color to Your Food

Adding more color to your foods makes meals more interesting and may add nutrients to your diet.

The American Heart Association suggests how to add color to your plate:

  • Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables to add variety to your meals.
  • Roast, grill or saute fruits and veggies.
  • Add fresh veggies to mac and cheese, or some fruit to a meal that looks plain.
  • Replace meat with veggies, such as mushrooms or eggplant.
  • Stay on budget by buying produce in bulk, and freezing extras.
  • Read labels to make sure that canned or frozen produce does not contain added sugar or salt.
