You’ve heard that eating the rainbow is good for your health. Packing your meals with a variety of colorful cancer-fighting fruits and veggies — peels and all — is the best way to add vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other important phytonutrients for keeping your immune system strong. More color on a plate isn’t too bad on the eyes, either.
Another great reason to eat the rainbow — especially in June? It’s Pride Month! Around the world, people celebrate the many accomplishments of the LGBTQ+ community in the right for equal rights, justice, and recognition. Rainbow flags have come to symbolize this month, so it’s only fitting to highlight foods bursting with color!
