The more colors you have on your plate, the more nutrients you are consuming. Having a variety of colors and foods on your plate ensures you’re eating balanced meals with a high nutrient density - and not just empty calories.
In truth, many fruits and vegetables come in a variety of colors due to the nutrients they contain. These healthy foods are further low in fat and calories while providing you with ample vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. The aesthetic appeal may also help you consume more healthy foods more often, as opposed to bland colored pre-packaged foods.
