Nutritional comment of Dr. Nicola Sorrentino, Head of Columbus Clinic Diet

To eat healthy and colorful helps us to fight free radicals (harmful substances that daily attack our cells) and the aging process in general. The main feature of this dish is the orange color, rich in beta-carotene, pigment with antioxidant properties. Let’s not miss the vitamin C of the orange, the healthy unsaturated fats of pistachios and the many virtues of ginger. Orange is the color of rationality and wisdom.
