Mother Nature provides an amazing variety of foods for us to choose from. I was so excited to discover that between our refrigerator, garden and freezer, our Sweet Peas could eat all the colors of the rainbow - all fresh foods without food coloring :)
The next goal is to find as many vegetables as we have fruits in our food selection - we tend to stick to carrots, broccoli and lettuce that we grow...time to grow their palette instead of try to do better the next time we do this theme!
Check out THIS post from MSU to read about all the health benefits and nutrients that each color provides.
watermelon & garden-fresh tomatoes...other red fruits we like that were not in the fridge: apples, strawberries, raspberries
tangelo, orange, peach
lemon, apple, banana
another staple we love is avocado
In our pantry:
apple-sweetened cranberries ~ sprinkle on oatmeal
currants ~ sprinkle on oatmeal or salads
goji berries ~ soak them and use them in smoothies
The veggies the kiddos enjoy:
broiled acorn squash ~ I usually puree this and add it to tomato sauce in their pizza, or to egg scramble
What are the rainbow colors that are popular in your family?
