Josh and I spotted this gorgeous rainbow outside our living room window during the last rains we had. He wanted to go looking for a pot of gold, but unfortunately it disappeared from view almost as quickly as it came.
We have, however, been trying to bring rainbows into the house through our eating habits, as of late. A couple years ago, my friend Deborah E., a former nutrition major at Poly, taught my women's Bible study about healthy eating habits. One of the things I remember her saying... eat a rainbow of foods every day. By eating more naturally colorful foods (no, bubble gum ice cream doesn't count), we are more likely to get the variety of nutrients we need. Kind of like the "5-a-day" rule, but with some visual appeal.
The last couple weeks, I've ordered a box of organic, pesticide-free veggies from Rutiz Farms. Here's what I got this week for $12 (plus 3 more kiwis, eaten immediately by 2 hungry leprechauns).
We are having a lot of fun trying to figure out ways to use these vibrant veggies. This weekend, I made a yummy braised fennel dish (up until this point, I hadn't ever seen fennel!!). In addition, Patrick concocted some homemade mint frozen yogurt... yummy!!
We're look forward to dishing up more colorful adventures!!! Bon Appetit!
