We know that food comes in many colors, but did you know that each color carries its own unique set of qualities and health benefits? That's right, each hue targets an essential part of your body's health, and the best way to get all the delicious benefits is by quite simply eating the whole rainbow of colorful foods. 

No one knows this better than Neka Pasquale, a licensed Acupuncturist, herbalist, author, and the founder of Urban Remedy — a plant-based, organic food company serving up everything from juices, to salads, to desserts. Neka explains, "one of the simplest ways to ensure your body gets all of the nutrients it needs is to eat fruits and vegetables in the full spectrum of colors. Nature has its own “color-coding” system, with different compounds creating different hues in our foods. Reminding yourself to Eat the Rainbow can help guide you to make healthier choices throughout the day. Keep a mental checklist, tracking how much red, orange, yellow, green, purple, and white plants you’ve eaten throughout the day, and choose accordingly at mealtime.” 

Seems simple enough, right? Keep reading to learn the benefits and best sources of each color, as well as some more expert knowledge that Neka shares on the power of food.
