2. Orange & Yellow
What: Carrots, cantaloupe, apricots, mango, oranges, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, papaya, bananas, corn, summer squash, lemon, grapefruit.
You can thank beta-carotene for that vibrant orange hue found in carrots, sweet potatoes and the like. The body converts beta-carotine into vitamin A, which helps your eyes, your bones and your immune system stay in tip-top shape. Citrus fruits, like oranges and lemons, are full of vitamin C, of course, but they’re also rich in bioflavonoids, and the two work together to help your bones, skin and teeth, and reduce your risks of cancer and heart disease.
