Wordless Wednesday: Eat A Rainbow

Posted on March 6, 2014 at 11:22 AM
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

kiwi; recently the kiddos discovered they like star fruit! 
another staple we love is avocado

blueberries: we usually have these fresh and frozen

red seedless grapes; we also have blackberries when they are in season

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:

fresh lettuce from our garden

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?
