Let’s talk purple power. These fruits and vegetables are high in antioxidants, especially the ones that give them their color.
Anthocyanins range from red to blue, hence purple!
Antioxidants help the immune system to protect the body from bacteria and viruses that want to breakdown our cells (oxidize). Anthocyanins help in prevention of disease. There’s studies on how anthocyanins reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and cognitive function.
Incorporate these beauties as they come into season to get them at their peak awesomeness! Buying local also increases the chance of you getting the fruits and veggies at their best.
