Eat Your Colors

Filling your plate with a variety of “colors” does much more than brighten up your table. Foods that are deep blue, purple, red, green or orange contain high levels of antioxidants and phytochemicals, the white-hat compounds that capture damage-causing free radicals and protect the body from numerous diseases. Colorful foods also pack lots of nutrients that boost immunity and enhance overall health. So if you want to increase the odds of living a long and healthy life, make the following colors a regular part of your diet:

• Broccoli, kale, spinach, cabbage, peas, avocado, collards

• Red tomatoes (particularly cooked), red peppers, red/pink grapefruit, watermelon, red grapes, beets, red cabbage, apples, strawberries, cherries, raspberries, cranberries

• Squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, yams, pumpkin, cantaloupe, mangoes, oranges, papaya, nectarines

• Plums, blueberries, blackberries, purple grapes, eggplant (with skin)

This is just one of the questions on, which is a free, educational Internet game where every right answer helps feed one more mouth around the world.

For every right answer you give, 10 grains of rice are donated to the UN world food program.

It takes about 20,000 grains of rice to provide an adult with two meals a day (in combination with vegetables, fruit, and protein). Playing the vocabulary and trivia games at FreeRice, which pose increasingly difficult questions, can easily generate several hundred grains of rice in a few minutes, and most users come away having learned new words and fun facts about history, science, and the arts.
