Adding Color to Your Meals

Leave a comment

Adding green, white, blue, purple, orange, yellow and red fruits and veggies to your meals takes imagination and a well-stocked refrigerator.  So far today I’ve added a banana to my soy shake and thinly sliced  cucumbers to my bagel and cream cheese.  Bananas are a white fruit so I’ve consumed 1 white and 1 green serving, at least 5 to go.

When combat shopping at the local food warehouse I will lug home a very large bag of frozen strawberries.  They have been flash frozen at the field and carry the red nutrients that can be added to breakfast shakes or blend them with a little pineapple juice for a great ice cream sauce.  Of course vanilla ice cream is a faux white fruit. 

Apply  your creativity and let me know how you are going to add  fruits and vegetables to every meal and snack.  Remember that a variety of colors and at least 7 servings per day is the goal.  Then we can truly have a healthchat.
