Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This recipe is bursting with color! When it comes to veggies, color is key! Different colors mean different phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are found in fruits and veggies and are believed to help prevent various diseases and be overall beneficial to health. For example, tomatoes contain the phytonutrient called lycopene, which has been linked to lower prostate cancer risk.
