For a healthy diet aim for a rainbow of colours

A rainbow of colours aids a healthy diet

Lovers of creative cuisine and natural foods may be among the healthier part of the population, it has been suggested.

Harley Street nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston recommended "aiming for a rainbow of colours throughout the day" by eating a mixture of fruit and vegetables.

She specified that at least five portions of fresh vegetables and at least three portions of berries should be taken daily.

Ms Bishop-Weston noted that this was similar to a high fibre, low fat Plantarian diet practiced by the likes of Bill Clinton to reduce heart disease.

"It's logical to assume that the more Plantarian foods you eat, the greater chance you have of getting a full complement of all the different nutrients and antioxidants on offer," the expert claimed.

Gastroenterologist Dr Nick Read recently claimed that some spices, such as turmeric, fennel, cumin and coriander, are calming on the gut and can reduce the chances of heartburn.
