Back in the 1970s, a man named Euell Gibbons was selling Grape Nuts cereal by asking, “have you ever eatin’ a pine cone? Many parts are edible.” Boy, did we have fun making jokes about that line as we were clogging our arteries with Big Macs and potato chips. Being the smart folk that we are and, yes, older than we were, let’s make better choices. Let’s eat rainbows!

Over at Nutrition Unplugged, they have a great blog post about how the color of fruits and vegetables are a clue to their healthiness. Dark colors mean anthocyanins and phytonutrients, yellow and orange give vitamin C and beta carotene (what’s up Doc?), reds are full of lycoene, and greens come with extra lutein.

Colors are healthy fun like a box of Crayola crayons or, as ol’ Euell might ask, “Have you ever eatin’ a rainbow, many parts are edible?”

Another way to get all those colors is to juice up some fresh vegetables in your favorite masticating juicer.
