Just as color can liven up drab interiors, ongoing research suggests brilliant hues can add vitality to the body. Including a plentiful amount of colorful fruits and vegetables in the diet may promote longevity and fend off debilitating and sometimes deadly diseases.
Experts say that particular colors like: green, blue/purple, red, white and yellow/orange correlate to unique phytochemicals, protective substances in plant foods that can help protect the body when eaten daily.
Delve deeper into the vital color green and discover one of the most nutrient-dense foods - avocados.

1/2 cup ice cubes or crushed ice
1 (11.5-oz) can peach nectar (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
