Wellness Tip — Orange, colorful foods boost nutrition
Keeping your diet healthy, colorful and full of nutrition is an important decision to make every day. Orange fruits and vegetables consist of beta-carotene, which converts into vitamin A in our bodies. Vitamin A is important for vision, immunity, bone health and preventing inflammation. Sweet potatoes, carrots and butternut squash are beta carotene-rich options. Other orange foods like oranges, tangerines, mango and peaches contain bioflavonoids that help prevent cancer and heart attacks. Increase consumption of beta-carotene and bioflavonoids by eating a sweet potato instead of a white potato, adding orange slices to a water bottle have a clementine or peach for a snack or try blending a mango, pineapple or peaches into a smoothie.
