Colours of the Harvest
Living healthy requires you eat a rainbow of colourful fruits and vegetables
It’s been said that we eat with our eyes but consume with our mouths. The colours, texture, flavour and nutritional value of the fruits and vegetables you consume are important factors to ensuring you’re maintaining a healthy and well-balanced diet.
Experience a bountiful of goodness from Carron Farms by indulging in the colours of the harvest, including:
Harvest Gold™ contains vegetables and fruits within the yellow and orange colour spectrum. This group of produce is highlighted with a healthy source of beta carotene, flavonoids and vitamin C, along with other phytochemicals. This group also offers a good source of fibre. Calcium, potassium and folate are other nutrients found in the Harvest Gold collection of produce. Excite your kitchen with at least two Harvest Gold items daily.
Harvest Red contains vegetables and fruits with scarlet to crimson hues. The Harvest Red collection of colour is highlighted with a wide array of phytochemicals, led by lycopene and anthocyanins. Fibre and potassium, along with a variety of other nutrients are also included in this colour group. Paint your kitchen with at least two Harvest red items daily.
Eating dark green vegetables like broccoli and spinach can help you keep your weight down, and they’re terrific sources of dietary fibre.
Harvest Purple and Blue
Harvest Purple/Blue fruits and vegetables contain phytochemicals, like anthocyanins and phenolics. These two commanding antioxidants are an important part of a healthy diet. Fibre and other nutrients are also found in this part of the Harvest Collection in key amounts. Unlock your creativity and fashion ways to use produce from the Harvest Purple/Blue collection daily.
Harvest White and Brown
Harvest White/Brown vegetables and fruits may not have energetic colour but contain a nutritional Gold mine with such phytochemicals as allyl sulfides and polyphenals. The sulphur compounds found in onions and garlic are extremely important. Also vitamin C is found in fair amounts in this section of the Harvest Collection. It has been said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and many great chefs believe that the onion is the heart of the kitchen. Be sure to include two servings from the Harvest White/brown group daily.
