Yellow and Orange Vegetables & Fruits

Every day someone will brag to me that they eat greens or green vegetables every day, as if there was no other color of produce that is healthy! So what special value do these foods offer us ? They are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. You might have guessed that like carrots and oranges they are packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin A and beta-carotene. These antioxidants can help protect our eyes and skin as well as help protect us from cancer and heart disease. So next time you’re at the grocery store or farmers’ market seek out a variety of colors including orange and yellow fruits and vegetables like these pattypan squash, beans, peppers and tomatoes that come in orange and yellow varieties.
