Purple food

Once reserved for fancy grocery stores and farmers markets, purple versions of our favorite produce (cauliflower, potatoes, corn, asparagus, etc.) are finally becoming more mainstream, according to Whole Foods' 2017 trends and products report—and this is great news!

So roasting up a blend of both white and purple potatoes, for example, means you're giving your body a wider breadth of vitamins for optimal health.  Things start to become less straightforward when it comes to processed foods made with this violet hued produce, though. Don't assume that a bag of chips of a box of cereal is automatically a healthy pick just because they're made with purple corn instead of  the yellow kind. It's still vital to read nutrition labels to ensure your snack of choice is a healthy one.
