I invite good friend and fellow medic, Doctor Anita Mitra to talk about the concept of eating the rainbow. What does this mean? What benefits do plants actually give us? How phytochemicals could be important in measuring in the future (alongside vitamins and minerals) as well as actionable tips for how you can eat more colours right now.
We talk about:What is a phytochemical?Why do plants have different colours and smells?The difference between micronutrients and phytochemicalsWhat is plant hormesis?The benefits of consuming plant chemicals, spices and herbs with specific reference to popular spices turmeric and matcha tea
