Why Eat Purple Food?


✅Purple food is high in the antioxidants reservatrol and anthocyanin. Antioxidants play a vital role in protecting our bodies, from - you guessed it - oxidants, also known as free radicals. Free radicals are a part of life, produced from bi-products of metabolism or environment, and with a healthy body our liver, kidneys, lungs work hard to remove toxins that can cause damage. ⠀

✅A recipe for chronic disease includes an overload of oxidants, (from processed foods, trans fats, medication, paints, chemicals, alcohol, nicotine, burnt food, toxins…) a less than optimally healthy body (from age, medication, malnourishment, lifestyle factors, stress) and a diet low in antioxidants. This is a combination of factors you really want to avoid.⠀

✅Eating a predominantly plant-based diet high in antioxidants, with a rainbow of colours, including plenty of purple rich foods is a great way to stay healthy and give your body a fighting chance:⠀
