Variety in the Diet
By James F. Balch, M.D. and Mark Stengler, N.D.
 

A healthful diet includes a wide a variety of foods. Every food has a different nutritional profile. By eating as many different healthful foods as possible, you expand the amount and the types of nutrients you take in.

In addition, your taste and desire for a wide variety of foods will increase after you experience so many different flavors, textures, and so on. Furthermore, a varied diet prevents food sensitivities from developing, thus you will avoid present and future problems (see the food sensitivities page for more information). Try to eat fruits and vegetables in every color of the rainbow: green, yellow, red, and so on. They all contain different phytonutrients, which are so valuable for preventing serious illnesses.
