Let’s talk about what the “rainbow of colors” is, and why this is important. M&M and Skittles, not the rainbow I am talking about!
Eating a diversity of colorful foods can be an easy way to get a range of the vitamins and minerals your body needs to thrive. The variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals in fruits and vegetables have enormous healing powers.
So, as you are chopping the shallots, carrots, red peppers, parsley, and kale for your soup recipe- think about your “beautiful rainbow” and know you are nourishing your body.
