Eating plenty of fruits and veggies is part of living healthy. But no single fruit or vegetable can give you everything, so how do you know what to choose? Easy: reach for a rainbow! Eating fruits and veggies in lots of different colors is a beautiful (and tasty) way to give your body the mix of nutrients it craves every day.
One of those key nutrients is vitamin C (ascorbic acid). What does it do for you?
Your body can’t store vitamin C, so you need to get it in your diet every day. C = Citrus, right? Sure — but you can get your C from a whole range of colorful fruits and veggies.
Toss some juicy berries into breakfast…tear into a bright green salad at lunch…snack on some whole fruit…add some roasted veggies and a side salad to dinner…it’s not hard, it’s delicious!
And when you aim for 7 or more servings of produce every day, variety’s the key (one of the reasons why Earthbound offers so many varieties of healthy organic fruits and veggies, of course). Different colors + different types = a delicious daily dose of vitamin C and an abundance of the other vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytonutrients that help you stay healthy and feel great!
