In October, orange is king, so you’ll have an easy time finding lots of orange produce to enjoy. Orange radiates newness and fresh starts. It’s the color of sunshine, of orange juice, of egg yolks, and our focus today as we eat our way through the rainbow. Simply looking at the color orange can spark creativity, conjure joy, encourage friendliness and whet the appetite, and eating orange produce gets you ready to do all of that! Orange coloration indicates the presence of antioxidants such as beta-carotene and lycopene, which can help support a healthy inflammatory response, increase immunity and boost eye and skin health.
