RAIN­BOW SALSA

The Hockey News - - Buzz -

We’ve all been told to eat our greens, but a healthy diet con­sists of fruits and veg­eta­bles of all col­ors, each of­fer­ing unique health ben­e­fits. Hav­ing a sim­ple recipe that brings a burst of color to your plate can be an easy way to main­tain a healthy diet, and Danielle Ran­court’s rain­bow salsa is a ver­sa­tile op­tion as a snack or a side. “Make sure to aim for at least three dif­fer­ent col­ors on your plate,” said Ran­court, a di­eti­tian with EXOS Per­for­mance. “For ex­am­ple, pur­ple fruits and veg­eta­bles pro­mote good blood flow, yel­low ones aid with di­ges­tion and op­ti­mize brain func­tion while green ones help re­ju­ve­nate mus­cu­la­ture and bone.” – JARED CLIN­TON
