Winters are the best times to enjoy veges so decided to designate a week by colour so here comes
Red colour food week
Red colour or in other words Lycopene is the predominant pigment in reddish fruits and veggies.
So whats behind the color lycopene, a carotenoid is a powerful antioxidant that has been associated with a reduced risk of some cancers, especially prostate cancer, and protection against heart attacks by improving blood circulation, organ function and blood pressure.In fact, cooking enhances the activity of some phytochemicals, such as lycopene.
Examples of red foods include tomatoes, watermelon, beets, and red bell peppers.
Fruits like pomegranate,strawberries, raspberries, cranberries and cherries.
