Eat a rainbow!

Say what?!? This week I was inspired by Cassey Ho from to eat a rainbow.  The idea is to eat a food that is a certain color for each day of the week. Sunday I went to the grocery store and stocked up on colorful foods. As you can see, I got a little excited...

  • Monday: red--tomato, apple
  • Tuesday: orange--orange, sweet potato
  • Wednesday: yellow--yellow pepper, banana
  • Thursday: green--lettuce, green pepper, kiwi, avocado
  • Friday: blue--blueberries
  • Saturday: purple--black berries, grapes
  • Sunday: eat as many colorful foods as possible!
It turns out that most of these foods are pretty tasty by themselves, so there hasn't been much cooking involved so far.  I did, however, trick myself into eating a  tomato by mixing it with avocado in guacamole.  It's really easy to make guacamole.  Just mash up the avocado, and then mix in diced tomato, diced onion, lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper, and maybe a little cayenne. I made some fresh tortilla chips to go with my guacamole.
