Getting Color in Your Diet: A Quick and Easy Guide

By Genevieve Cunningham

Eating healthy sometimes feels difficult -- or even worse, boring. We all want to eat healthy and keep our bodies slim and toned, but actually accomplishing this task takes a lot of hard work. But does it have to? Isn’t there a way to make it just a little easier, especially in the beginning? As it turns out, the answer may be all in the color. If you want to improve your diet and need a little help, take a look at these easy ways to get more color (and health!) into your diet.

Why is Color Important?

It’s not necessarily the actual color that is so important, but rather what the color signifies -- nutrition. The more color you see on your plate, the more likely you’re getting the vitamins and nutrients that you need to be as healthy as possible. If your plate is all beige or brown, your calories are likely high and nutrients low. Color means vegetables, fruit, and even herbs that can bring much needed nutrients to your diet and life.

Checking for Health at a Glance

So how can you very quickly determine whether a meal is healthy? Look for vibrant colors. While it’s possible to eat healthy foods that are white, brown, or beige, most superfoods are bright or rich in color. Greens, reds, yellows, and even oranges are more likely to contain multiple necessary vitamins and minerals. Glance at your plate. Is there any color? If not, remove the boring sides and replace them with something oozing with a rich and delectable color.

Easy Additions to Any Diet

If you’re having trouble with finding enough color, this quick and easy guide can help you get moving in the right direction. A few healthy and colorful options might include:

  • Need green? - Grab green beans, peas, kale, lettuce, or baby spinach
  • Looking for red? - Get some tomatoes, red bell peppers, apples, or beets
  • When you need yellow - Reach for yellow bell pepper, onion, banana, or squash
  • If orange is needed - Eat some orange bell pepper, carrots, or apricots

Eating a healthy diet is probably easier than you think. Just look for color, and you’re already off to a great start! The more colorful the plate, the better it will likely be for your body and mind. Use these foods to give you a head start, and you’ll soon have a menu that is beautiful, delicious, and healthier than ever before.
