Adding more vegetables with varying colors to our meal adds a gut-bug diversity [How to make disease disappear, Chatterjee, 2019]. Different colors have different phytonutrients that help our hearts and reduce inflammation. Beets, Broccoli, Carrots, add all of them to your diet; they are not only pleasing to eyes but also great for our health!
