7 Colors to Add to Your Diet with Hello Fresh

August 18, 2020

Let’s talk about the Groutfit. You know what we’re talking about - grey pants, grey shirt, grey hat, grey shoes. It’s easy, and can sometimes, for sure, but grey-all-day isn’t how you want to live your life, is it? Monochrome is monotonous. If you want to realize the full range of possibilities for your style, you want a rainbow of options to choose from. The same goes for your diet. While it can be comforting to eat only from a palette of browns and yellows (we see you potato chips and french onion dip!), you’ll feel and look better in the long run if the colors in your refrigerator are as varied as the colors in your closet. Fruits and vegetables are the colors they are because of the chemical compounds found in their skin and flesh, and the more colors you include in the meals you cook, the more likely it is that you’re getting each of the different essential nutrients that you need to stay healthy. (it’s important to note that nutrition is a widely debated science, and while many of the naturally occurring chemicals and compounds listed here have been widely used for the benefits described, there’s often little definitive scientific evidence to back up some of the claims, but of the vitamins and minerals listed here, adding more of them certainly can’t hurt!). Hello Fresh is all about empowering you to eat healthy while keeping the cooking easy, so let’s take a look at some of the benefits of all the colors available to you in your Hello Fresh meal kits.
For Heart Health

Red

The most basic thing to know about red foods - tomatoes, strawberries, beets, watermelon, etc. - are that they’re good for your heart. They can also benefit your eyes and your urinary tract, and are generally good for disease prevention. An easy way to remember it is to think of red hearts and the red cross on a pharmacy sign! If chemistry isn’t your thing, you can stop there, but if you dig molecules, you’ll want to know that red foods frequently contain lycopene, which is a strong antioxidant that is frequently used to prevent heart disease, and the flavonoid anthocyanin, another strong antioxidant. Hello Fresh’s Sausage and Roasted Bell Pepper Pasta has tons of gorgeous red bell peppers and tomatoes in the sauce, and these Crushed Beets with Whole Wheat Spaghetti will fill your plate with deep red root vegetables.

For Vision

Orange & Yellow

If there’s one health-nerd fact you probably already know, it’s that carrots contain beta carotene and that they’re good for your eyes. Also that eating too many carrots can turn your skin orange. Good news for good students: both of those things are true, though carotenemia (what they call it when your skin turns orange) is very rare and you would have to eat a boat-load of foods containing beta carotene for that to happen. What is it that’s so cool about beta carotene though? Well, beta carotene is a red-orange pigment in the carotenoid family that is an antioxidant and is converted by the body into Vitamin A, which is an essential nutrient. Carrots were the first vegetable from which beta carotene was derived - hence the name “carotene” - but a lot of other vegetables though, like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, peppers, and cantaloupe, also have beta carotene and are thought to be equally as beneficial for your eyes, as well as your skin and your immune system. Try Hellofresh Pineappley Pork Meatloaves with the sweet potato and bell pepper jumble for a big dose of beautiful beta carotene-filled fruits and veggies to keep your eyes healthy (but still keep your skin from turning orange).

Super Foods

Green

Ahh, gorgeous greens! Maybe that thing in the last paragraph about carrots-being-good-for-your-eyes being the one health fact you know wasn’t totally correct. It’s just as likely that you know that greens are the superheroes of the food world. They pack a serious punch with essential vitamins and nutrients that you need to stay healthy. The list of good stuff greens contain is lengthy, and contains vitamins and minerals you already know about, like Vitamins A, K, and C, folate, calcium, magnesium, and iron. They also frequently contain high amounts of the plant-synthesized carotenoid lutein, which is commonly referred to as the “eye vitamin” because of the way it benefits eyesight and eye health. There are nearly endless ways to incorporate leafy greens, cruciferous greens, and green fruits into your diet, like smoothies, stir fries, and salads, and Hello Fresh is already on board, with offerings like their Sweet Heat Shrimp Tempura Bowl with roasted broccoli, green onion, and quick pickled cucumbers, or the Gorgeous Greens Farro Bowl with roasted zucchini and asparagus.

Best for Antioxidants

Blue & Purple

This color category may seem like the most difficult to incorporate into your diet, if only because the list seems short (blueberries and… what else?). But that’s no reason not to try! It will be worth the effort. Blue and purple foods are also rich in the antioxidants, flavonoids, and anthocyanins that are found in the red and orange foods, which are good for your immune system, your cognitive function, and your bones. Plus, they’re just so darn pretty! Besides, the list isn’t really that short. There’s blueberries, of course, but also blackberries, grapes, purple cabbage, and eggplant, as well as purple varieties of carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, and asparagus. Check out the Purple Sweet Potato Nicoise from Hello Fresh to bump up the saturation on the blue and purple hues on your plate with.

Immunity Boosting

White

Some will argue that white’s not really a color, whereas others will argue that white is kind of all the colors mixed into one. For the purposes of vitamin-rich menus, though, white foods like onions, garlic, and cauliflower definitely warrant a category. These veggies contain allyl sulfides, which are thought to have antibacterial and antifungal properties, and may also be an immunity booster. Some folks are sensitive to alliums, like garlic and onion, but will still have access to the benefit of allyl sulfides in a delicious dish with cauliflower, like Cauliflower Mac and Cheese, or Curry Spiced Cauliflower and Squash.
