Colorful Fruits and Vegetables

I was thinking how to make sure I get all necessary vitamins and minerals without having to take pills, and I remembered something I read several years ago about eating a "rainbow" of plant-based food. Apparently, each color has something it specializes at. The fruits and vegetables are categorized as red, orange, yellow, light green, dark green, blue/purple, brown/black and white. Some people say that you should try for balance every day with all the different colors. If I tried that, I would end up wasting a lot of food, because I can't eat up everything that fast. I tend to make one vegetable and eat it all week. However, I think I am going to try to have more colors in my meals from now on. Do you try to eat healthy vegetables and fruits of different colors?

I like your idea which you will obtain the vitamins from the natural food. This is very different from the foreigners. As I think sometimes they tend to take the vitamin pills more frequent. I like the change, even for my diet. Namely I will not have the same food all the time. Such as if today I have broccoli, then tomorrow I will have spinach etc. It is the same for me to cook the meats.

Koreans have this food they called Bibimbap. When I was watching National Geographic when it was featured, it says that this food has different colors of ingredients because each color actually targets a specific parts in our organs for health. So every chance I get, I eat at a Korean restaurant and order bibimbap. I love it.
