What Color is your Diet

Most of you might think the basic food groups are cheese, wine and coffee. However, there is something to be said about colorful food that simply tastes so delicious and fresh.

Thanks to Tattfoo Tan, a Malaysian-born artist who lives in Staten Island, New York, we can now better understand how to nourish our bodies. He takes regular trips to the Union Square Greenmarket and started the Nature Matching System.

The concept is simple and designed to extract 88 colors that would best represent 88 different fruits and vegetables. The magic 88 were developed as a reminder to consume your daily recommended doses of color. One might think of these intense colors as nature’s nutrition labels. Ruby reds, deep purples, vibrant yellows....all the vitamins and compounds that play a vital role in filtering out all the junk and free radicals.
