There are plenty of “white” foods that are good for us.
Here are just a few:
• Protein rich foods: chicken, turkey, fish, tofu
• Fruits and starchy vegetables that provide vitamins, minerals and fiber: bananas, potatoes, turnips, parsnips, jicama, white beans
• What else? Mushroom, garlic, onions, leeks
Don’t be so quick to discriminate about foods based on their color! Think about the nutrient benefits foods provide.
