Eat the Rainbow???
Eat the rainbow....and I’m NOT talking a bag of skittles! 🌈🌈🌈Look down at your next plate of food and see how many colors are represented. Too often it is heavy on the beige color. It’s better to shoot for eating foods a color of the rainbow at every meal. Different colors supply different nutrients.
We are counting down my TOP 10 activities to kickstart National #wellnessmonth.
Plants soak up nutrients in the soil they grow in. They absorb happy sunshine! ☀️Plants give us oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide so we cannot love without them.
Some say eat more meat, others claim vegan or die. No matter what food philosophy you subscribe to no one ever argues that plants are bad for you.
According to the food and agriculture association we humans eat only about 200 of the over 300,000 safe edible plants available on earth. Only three - rice, maize and wheat - contribute nearly 60 percent of calories and proteins obtained by humans from plants. Think about this too. We grow a lot of grain just to feed animals. We would actually use less water if we ate the grain ourselves.
Today, 75 percent of the world’s food is generated from only 12 plants and five animal species. Holy lack of variety!
