Vitamins in Blue and Green Fruits

One of my favorite dietetics related topics is learning about different vitamins in foods.  I've already shared with you the nutrition in purple produce, orange and yellow fruits, and red fruits. This is the last of this series and it talks about vitamins in blue and green fruits. Enjoy!

***Everyone has probably heard about the antioxidants in blueberries but did you know that other foods such as green tea, chocolate, wine, beer, tomatoes, etc also contain many anti-oxidants?

***There are not too many green fruits but obviously there are tons of green vegetables. The vegetables with the darkest color usually pack the most vitamins and minerals. Some great ones are spinach, kale, broccoli, green peppers, etc.

What are your favorite green and blue fruits and vegetables?
I love spinach, kale, kiwi, and cabbage!

  1. Love kiwi, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, spinach with vinegar, broccoli, and asparagus.

  2. I think I like all the blues and greens--at least I can't think of any that I son't. I even ate collard greens as a kid. I never even ask or worry about how many calories are in these foods. They are so dense in nutrients that I don't count the calories.
