Many of us find strong correlation between food and calories.
Some even explore content in fat grams, carbs and protein, but we all ignore the important factor: coloring!
But we don’t think of the artificial color, but the true natural colors in whole foods: red beet, sunset orange, sunshine squash, lush green spinach or regal violet blueberry.
A lot of foods circulate around 3 colors: yellow, brown and white. Just think of these known breakfasts: ready-to-eat milk and cereal, French toast, pancakes, waffles, sausage, bacon, eggs. They are in that color range: white, yellow or brown!
What exactly means more color?
Scientifically speaking, the natural food colors indicate on presence of phytonutrients. Every day we get less of 1 tsp of these plant compounds and they are essential for fighting inflammation, leveling hormones, or improving insulin sensitivity in general.
To get every color is of a great improtance for every single body chakra. Here are the links of chakras and colors connections and examples of foods to eat in order to get every color!
