    "simply eating five servings a day of fruits and vegetables will not guarantee that you are eating enough of the different substances needed to stimulate the metabolic pathways of genes in the different organs where fruits and vegetables have their beneficial effects. We need to make an extra effort to eat many different foods to get the full range of benefits." You need the:

    Red Group
    (tomatoes, can of V8 juice, pink grapefruit, watermelon)

    Yellow/Green Group
    (spinach greens, collard greens, mustard greens, turnip greens, yellow corn, green peas, avocado, honeydew melon)

    Orange Group
    (carrots, mangos, apricots, cantaloupes, pumpkin, acorn squash, winter squash, sweet potatoes)

    Orange/Yellow Group
    (pineapple, orange juice, oranges, tangerines, peaches, papayas, nectarines)


    Red/Purple Group
    (beets, eggplant, purple grapes, red wine, grape juice, prunes, cranberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, red apples)


    Green Group
    (broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, Chinese cabbage or bok choi, kale)


    White/Green Group
    (leeks, scallions, garlic, onions, celery, pears, white wine, endive, chives)

    Apart from eating fruits, veg and drinking Tonnes of water - read the ingredients on the food you buy. Some of them are not healthy.
