The Rainbow Challenge


The Rainbow


Tired of eating the same food over and over again? Maybe it's time to try something new, to add some color to your plate? This week when you head to the grocery store, decide on one, beautiful, and bright color of the rainbow as your focus. In the produce section of the store (not the candy aisle :^), try choosing vegetables and fruits of that particular color. Add these whole foods to your meals and look up different ways to cook them. Have fun with it! Below is one of my favorite recipes for asparagus...

  • Rinse asparagus
  • Cut off tough ends
  • Drizzle with 1 TB of vegetable or coconut oil
  • Sprinkle with thyme to taste (I like 1 to 2 TB)
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes, reduce heat to 250 degrees for 10 more minutes
  • Enjoy!
