    Here is some information from http://www.5aday.com/html/colorway/colorway_home.php#green
    They have examples of what fruits and vegetables go in each color category.

    "Eating 5 or more servings of colorful fruits and vegetables a day is part of an important plan for healthier living. That’s because deeply hued fruits and vegetables provide the wide range of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals your body needs to maintain good health and energy levels, protect against the effects of aging, and reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.*


    Boost the level of BLUE/PURPLE in your low-fat diet to help maintain:

    • A lower risk of some
    cancers*
    • Urinary tract health
    • Memory function
    • Healthy aging

    Add GREEN to your low-fat diet to maintain:

    • A lower risk of some cancers*
    • Vision health
    • Strong bones and teeth

    Working WHITE into your low-fat diet helps maintain:

    • Heart health
    • Cholesterol levels that are already healthy
    • A lower risk of some cancers*

    Make YELLOW/ORANGE a part of your low-fat diet to help maintain:

    • Heart health
    • Vision health
    • A healthy immune system
    • A lower risk of some cancers*

    Be sure to include RED in your low-fat diet to help maintain:
    • Heart health
    • Memory function
    • A lower risk of some cancers*
    • Urinary tract health"
