Color your rainbow fruity and veggielicious

Orange/yellow fruits and vegetables such as: apricots, cantaloupe, carrots, mangoes, papayas, peaches, yellow peppers, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes contain the natural plant pigment called “carotenoids.” Carotenoids play an essential role in the health of our eyes, as well as reducing the risk of cancers, heart disease, and improving our overall immune system.

Red fruits and vegetables such as: beets, red cabbage, cherries, cranberries, pink grapefruit, red grapes, red peppers, pomegranates, raspberries, rhubarb, strawberries, tomatoes and watermelon contain natural plant pigments called “lycopene” and “anthocyanins.” Lycopene is a carotenoid that has been found to help reduce the risk of cancers, especially prostate cancer. Anthocyanins act as a powerful antioxidant, helping to protect our cells from free radical damage and keep our heart healthy.

Green fruits and vegetables such as: artichokes, asparagus, avocados, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, green cabbage, kiwi, lettuce, green onions, and peas are colored by the natural plant pigment cholrophyl. Dark green fruits and vegetables provide an excellent source of the antioxidants lutein and indoles. Lutein (found in foods such as dark greens, peas, and green peppers) works to support eye health and reduce the risk of cataracts. Indoles (found in broccoli, cabbage, and other cruciferous vegetables) have been found to provide protection against some cancers.

Blue/purple fruits and vegetables such as: blackberries, blueberries, eggplant, prunes, plums, and purple grapes contain the natural plant pigment called “anthocyanins.” Anthocyanins have been found to protect cells from damage and reduce the risk of cancers and heart disease.

White fruits and vegetables such as: bananas, cauliflower, garlic, mushrooms, and white onions contain the natural plant pigment “anthoxanthins.” Anthoxanthins have been linked to a decrease in cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as reducing the risk for stomach cancer.

Hey!!!

Soo… I know it’s been awhile since I’ve been super active on my page and I want to think all my followers for sticking with me!!! I haven’t fallen off the veganism but definitely slacked on the workout and healthy home cooking aspects.

 My recommitment and promise to myself:

 To workout at least 4x a week and run at least 2-3 days a week Eat a HUGE salad, drink a protein packed smoothie and not eat dinner out every day!!!!!

ULTIMATE REALITY GOAL

: Run the Komen Race for the Cure 5k in Austin,TX on November 4, 2012 and get to my goal of 160lbs Let’s do this tumblr!!!!!
