    What colors are in your lunch today?

    This week’s challenge is a fun one – and if you have kids, you definitely will want to get them in on the action!

    It’s the “EAT THE RAINBOW” Challenge! I’ve even included a handy list to get you started.

    ❤️ Did you know that health experts recommend eating at least 4½ cups of fruits & veggies every day?

    That’s 1½ to 2 cups of fruit, and between 2 to 2½ cups of vegetables a day.

    That doesn’t mean just munching on baby carrots and apple slices – you’ll get even more valuable micronutrients (like vitamins, minerals, and important plant compounds) if you eat a VARIETY of fruits and veggies.

    Plus, it’s a lot tastier!

    That’s where this challenge comes in – this week, it’s all about eating a veggie/fruit choice from each color group.

    Here’s a list to help get you inspired:

    Red/Pink: beets, cherries, cranberries, pink grapefruit, pomegranates, radicchio, radishes, raspberries, red apples, red grapes, red peppers, red potatoes, rhubarb, tomatoes, watermelon.

    Orange/Yellow: squash, apricots, cantaloupe, carrot, corn, grapefruit, lemons, mangoes, nectarines, oranges & tangerines, orange & yellow peppers, papaya, peaches, pineapple, pumpkin, sweet potatoes.

    Green: artichokes, asparagus, avocados, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, celery, greens (cabbage, lettuce, spinach, kale, etc), cucumber, green beans, green grapes, green onions, green peppers, kiwi, leeks, limes, okra, pears, peas, watercress, zucchini.

    White: bananas, cauliflower, garlic, Jerusalem artichoke, mushrooms, onion, potatoes, parsnips, shallots.

    Blue/Purple: blackberries, blueberries, currants, dates, eggplant, purple grapes, plums, prunes, purple figs, raisins.

    ✅ #1: Let us know if you are IN for the Rainbow Challenge.

    ✅ #2: How will YOU do this week’s challenge? Will you divide and conquer (eat one color a day)? Make a giant salad with one choice from each? Let us know in the comments!
