Featured Food Tip
When buying vegetables and fruits for a salad, choose a wide variety of colours. Each colour shade will offer a different set of nutrients, called antioxidants. The deeper and darker the colour, the richer the food is with these disease-fighting antioxidants. Try a deep green lettuce mix topped with red sweet pepper, cucumber slices, sweet potato and shredded beetroot.
