How do you know if you are getting enough phytonutrients?

Hundreds of phytonutrients have been discovered thus far. Because fruits and vegetables contain different amounts of these beneficial compounds, it is best to eat a variety of plants. Phytonutrient content is categorized by color (dark green, light green, red, orange, and purple.) If you get at least one from each of these color groups daily, you will not only be getting a variety of beneficial phytonutrients but meeting the recommended minimum of 5 to 13 servings of fruits or vegetables a day. (Note: while color indicates the predominant phytonutrient content, most fruits and vegetables contain multiple phytonutrients.)
