  • How vibrant is your eating?
  • Are all colors on your plate?
  • How can eating a rainbow change your life?

Color heals…the look of it…the taste of it…the medicine it carries.

We are not getting enough color in our eating, so it is no surprise that we have high rates of chronic disease. When we change the colors we eat, we change our lives.

Eating naturally-colored foods like fruits, vegetables, herbs, whole grains, legumes, and nuts are essential to good health because of the colors they contain.

There are about 10,000 colorful plant compounds in nature-derived foods, of which we consume an absolute amount of less than a teaspoon, yet they have the ability to significantly impact the cell pathways underlying chronic disease that are related to inflammation, stress response, and insulin function.

In this presentation, which can be tailored for professionals or individuals, learn about the colorful phytonutrients – the various categories, their functions, the foods they are found in, and the new research on how they impact human health.
