Boost your health by eating a diet with colours of the rainbow. Fruit and vegetables are filled with nutrient goodness that your body needs, and a great way to ensure you are getting this, is to cook with a variety of foods that differ in colour.
See how many colours of the rainbow you can consume this week and be inspired by some delicious recipes below!
Red, Orange, Yellow
Starting off with the warm colours, it’s easy to pop some colour into each meal with these three beautiful colours.
Capsicums are fantastic and come in a variety of colours! Particularly red capsicums, as they are filled with antioxidants and have that great sweetness and crunch. Capsicums can make for a great snack with dip or try it in our Capsicum & Basil Frittata.
Carrots are an easy and accessible vegetable we all have in our fridge! If you want to enjoy carrots in a new way, try our Loaded Carrot Fries with Chilli Cheese Beef – you won’t want to have carrots any other way after this!
Load up on your greens! Especially leafy greens like kale, spinach, and silver beet, as these are easy ingredients you can wilt into any meal or enjoy as part of a salad.
Salads are an easy and tasty way to enjoy greens at their best! Consuming raw greens like kale ensures your body can absorb the best nutrients from it. Our Heart Smart Kale Salad has all you need to enjoy a delicious healthy meal.
While not many fruits and vegetables are purple, they can add a delightful finishing touch to a meal! Experiment with vegetables like beetroot, radish, and cabbage to enhance your meal colours this week. We recommend trying our Salmon with Cabbage, Pecans and Bacon or our Roasted Beetroot & Mandarin Salad.
Brown & White
You’ll find it easy to include a white element of food each day. Think potatoes, bananas, garlic, and cauliflower. Get creative with your ingredients and enjoy cauliflower in a different way such as our Cauliflower Fried Rice. For potatoes we recommend trying our Potato Corn Chowder for a delicious winter meal.
We hope you reach for some different fruit and vegetables this week and enjoy a rainbow of meals to boost your general health.
