Black Is The New Green When It Comes to Healthy Eating

"Black Beans. The dark skins of these beans are packed with
bioflavonoids- potent plant-based nutrients that may protect
against cancer, research out of Cornell University reveals.
Black Rice. Brown rice is good for you, but black rice is
even better. That's because the bran hull contains significantly
higher amounts of vitamin E, which bolsters the immune system
and protects cells from free radical damage. In fact, black rice
contains more anthocyanin antioxidants than blueberries, according
to a study from the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center."
