Did you know the color of fruits or vegetables can tell you the vitamins and nutrients they have? HueTrition creates a healthy lifestyle change that lasts. It is NOT a diet, but if you or your family have been struggling to eat enough fruits and vegetables, or if you are wondering how to shift to a more plant-based way of eating, or if you just want some new ideas to incorporate nutritious color into you lifestyle, this is a great book for you! You’ll learn how to substitute your snacks and side dishes with colorful vegetables. The more you do this, the more you’ll notice improvements in your energy levels and weight—but more importantly, you’ll be on your way to fool-proofing yourself against chronic disease (coupled with regular physical activity, of course)!
At HueTrition, we divide these foods into 5 categories, grouped by color: blue/purple, red, green, yellow/orange, and white. Dividing fruits and vegetables by color provides an easy way to incorporate nutrient needs and health benefits into our diet. You should aim to consume one of each of the 5 colors every day.
This book also serves as a guide to children. Within the second half of the book, you’ll find a story you can read to your children: one that invites them into the world of choosing food through color. We also encourage you to check out HuePets, a fun way to encourage kids to eat fruits and vegetables by turning healthy eating into a game. It is important to get kids excited about eating fruits and vegetables, because the choices they make at a young age can shape choices for the rest of a child’s life.
