Weekend Challenge: Rainbow Connection

Friday, March 8, 2013


As I am just getting started in my Institute for Integrative Nutrition course, I am really in to food these days. Part of my induction is reading a book by the Institute's founder.  He states that Americans eat less than 1 piece of fruit a day.  Please tell me this isn't true!

This weekend I am challenging you to go to the shop and buy a fruit or vegetable in every color.  Make it social by assigning each color to a friend and then get together to share your bounty.  Try something you have never had before.  Let me know what yummy things you discover.

Think 'ROY G BIV' (woah, this takes me back to elementary school!)


Red- tomatoes, berries, bell peppers, radishes, cherries, apples

Orange- bell peppers, oranges, pumpkin, squash, carrots, sweet potato

Yellow- corn, bell peppers, pineapple, lemons, bananas,

Green- beans, brocolli, kale, kiwi, avacado, lime, spinach, grapes, asparagus

Blue/Indigo/Purple- blueberries, eggplant, purple onions, cabbage, figs, raisins
