The Triangle of Color, Food and Health!
Kandinsky, a Russian painter and art theorist, said, " Color is power that directly influences the soul." True that! Our minds express themselves through colors. Individuals's moods, behaviours, and thought processes are often influenced by their choice of color. But did you know that the color of food can also affect your health and immunity? It must have happened to you that certain colors elicit certain emotions from you. Do you ever wonder why the stress relieving smiley ball is always yellow?
In association with food, it has been proven that fruits and vegetables that are more vibrant in nature are a richer source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Our diet needs to be balanced nutritionally by including as many colors as possible to represent as many nutrients as possible. There are many nutrients found in colorful fruits and vegetables that are beneficial in fighting cancer, heart disease, hypertension, and other diseases.
