We should vary our daily diet as much as we can, eating colourful vegetables as much as possible

We should vary our daily diet as much as we can, eating colourful vegetables as much as possible.
.
This was my super-healthy protein and good carbs breakfast today consisting of purple sprouting broccoli, purple sweet potatoes and organic eggs with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. .
All brightly coloured fruit and vegetables contain antioxidants – compounds which play a key role in protecting our bodies – and many naturally purple-coloured foods contain an antioxidant called anthocyanin. This is a beneficial plant pigment which gives fruit and veg their deep red, purple or blue hues.
.
This antioxidant can help your immune system and reduce inflammation in the body. .

These sunflower, broccoli and kale micro greens have a higher concentration of vitamins, phytonutrients, antioxidants and  minerals than normal greens contain. Microgreens are also rich in enzymes, which enable them to be more easily digested.
.
This lunch I threw together looks huge on the plate but is mostly the microgreens, avocado ( for healthy fats) and wilted spinach ( for iron) 
With a salmon fillet ( for omega3)  griddled for a crispy skin in extra virgin olive oil (healthy oils) .
.
The sauerkraut is for good gut health, a tablespoon eaten before the meal, .
and a couple of olives can also act as a natural probiotic as well as all their other antioxidant and healthy oil benefits.
