Taste the (Vegetable) Rainbow


Fresh veggies are a staple of summer, but there may be more to eating an array of healthy hues than the aesthetically pleasing rainbow effect they create when tossed into a crisp salad (like these creative options from Better Homes and Gardens). Ready to have your mind blown? Different colored vegetables each have unique health components. Despite the fact that sweet potatoes taste delicious in french fry-form, that craving might be your body asking for more beta-carotene or vitamin C. Use this guide to ensure you’re getting a full spectrum of nutrients.
