Feat

Brightly Colored

Food is not just about taste. It's about smell, and texture, and color. In some important, primal way, food colors signal things to us, and safe to say a monochromatic diet is not a healthy one. "The deeper the color, the healthier it is," say Whole Foods' crack nutritionists. To complete the Brightly Colored feat, you must make sure there are at least three bright colors on your plate at every meal, for just one day.  Get your inner Gauguin going, and have fun with this one. Think beets, kale, eggs, melon, curry...BLUEFISH! Need some inspiration? Check out these cool placemats.

Goal: workout today + complete Brightly Colored feat. No workout yet, but got off to the right start with breakfast: RED peppers + GREEN spinach + ORANGE juice (fresh squeezed). ...And turkey bacon and scrambled eggs.

For inspiration, I love the Wegman's Eat a Rainbow Every Day guide.

So easy - I always eat for color! Breakfast this morning was papaya, red grapes, kiwi and banana. Lunch will be sardines and mixed greens (kale, chard, spinach). Not sure what's for dinner, but last night was sushi - mixed sashimi on greens, cucumber salmon wrap, and steamed veggies!

Look, look, look to the rainbow.... Always try to do this... for example, my kitchen is packed with zucchini, butternut squash, fennel, tomatoes, green and red apples, pears, radishes, cantaloup, turnips, chicken, eggs, beets, kale, eggplant, carrots. Then lets add cumin or ginger or rosemary, garlic...

I had a colorful day yesterday. 

It started with a golden omlette (cafe-free hens eggs and cheddar cheese).

Later I had some dark green Israeli cimmichurri on flax quinoa bread.

I had some bright red farmer's market peppers with hummus.

I boiled one of those light green broccoli/cauliflower hybrids.

I ended the day with draft black coffee stout from Whole Foods UWS and had the last slice of a black and white chocolate moose birthday cake from Sing and Sing (Russell was 18 on Saturday).
