Do you get your five a day in on a regular basis? An fun and healthy way of doing so is by ''colour charting'' your required fruit and veg- all the different spectrums of fruit and veg colours have different ways of benefiting us plus it looks real pretty as a bonus! Today we are discussing our REDS! Some of the natural goodness that red fruit/veg carry are such as: Lycopene, ellagic acid, Quercetin, and Hesperidin which can reduce the risk of prostate cancer, as well as other cancers as the high amount of antioxidants literally soak up the damaging free radicals. Reds can also reduce your risk of stroke, heart disease, lower blood pressure, strengthen bones and joints, and even reduce macular degeneration (leading cause of blindness in people over 60).
Here is a list of fun reds to enjoy:
Red bell peppers
Red chilli peppers
You can even mix and match and make yourselves a fun red smoothie or juice and I guarantee you it will taste a lot better than a can of soda ;)
