Getting In Fruits And Vegetables.

Think about the colors of the rainbow when buying fruits and vegetables. Buy as many different colors as you can. The more colors, the healthier you'll be eating.

When I go to the grocery store, I think of the colors of the rainbow. Roy G Biv was taught by my Home Ec teacher to remember the rainbow R-red, o-orange, y-yellow, G-green, B-blue, i-indigo and violet. Fruit and vegetables are similar. Get as many as possible.

    Great tip! I do this one and even keep a list on my fridge as a reminder :)
And to answer KOEHNA for indigo and violet- blue berries, black berries, purple cabbage, purple onions, eggplant, purple or black grapes, fig, plum, prune, raisin...

    That is so funny I never thought of that good idea. One question what would be indigo and violet?
