I love food. I would ask, who doesn’t? However, there are individuals out there who just don’t care about food or eating. To each his or her own. I enjoy it. I like to try all sorts of new cuisines and dishes. I like to mix up odds and ends as well.
Recently, I was out for a late lunch get together. I over ordered, as usual. In all fairness to myself, I had already walked over 10,000 steps. My friend ordered a very small amount, as usual. What struck me however is her diet of eating colorful food. Bright oranges and yellows. I had never contemplated such a diet but I was intrigued. And, it makes sense. Foods that are bright orange are often going to be rich in the antioxidant beta-carotene.
Turns out one should eat a rainbow of foods — red, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple and white. Turns out one should aim to mix up the hues when eating out. What’s even better for me, is that brightly colored foods remind me of being a kid. I feel like it brings out one’s inner child and we can all afford to do that more often.
