The first step to improving your food intake and your health is nutrition education, application (practice) and consistency.

The next step may be learning why you eat. Do you turn to food when you are stressed, bored, sad, lonely, frustrated or looking for something to do?

Evaluating why you eat can be just as important as the education itself and remember you are not alone in your struggles with food.unnamed

Carotenes or Xanthophylls

Have you ever considered why it is important to eat a variety of produce daily?
Each color (pigment) in fruits and vegetables has scientific names and various functions to improve our health.
Orange, pinks, reds and yellows are called carotenes or xanthophylls. Our bodies will break these down into carotene to produce Vitamin A.
Vitamin A helps with vision, immune system, reproduction and helps most organs to function.
Try to aim for at least four different colors of produce per day, with the major focus on vegetables.
