Blue and purple food sources are few but their benefits are plentiful. They have immunity-boosting properties. They also improve our brain’s function and bone health. They can delay many neurological diseases and even type 2 diabetes. Eat brinjal, blackberries, jamun and purple cabbage. 

White / Brown

White and brown colour foods are known to reduce the risk of cancer especially colon cancer. They have allyl sulfides that can reduce heart diseases and improve immune health. Add cauliflower, garlic, onion and mushrooms to your diet.
