LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – If your New Year's Resolution includes healthier eating for the whole family, nutritionists recommend this simple guide for healthy shopping and eating, choose the fruits and veggies that are the most colorful.

"Look for vegetables that are bright red, bright orange, bright green because they're full of phytonurtrients. That means they have cancer fighting compounds that will help your body be strong, resist sickness and get all the vitamins they can," said Louisa Shafia, with lucidfood.com.

Louisa says another important part of good health is staying hydrated by drinking lots of water.
