Colour Your Menu

Good nutrition ultimately needs to pass the rainbow test. What’s the rainbow test, you ask? Check out the colour on your plate, because, when it comes to fruits and vegetables, the brighter the colour, the more nutrient dense it likely is. Those beautifully vibrant colours not only make foods more appealing to our eyes and taste buds but also let us know when food is at its peak of ripeness and flavour. And, best of all, the nutrients loaded into these colour bombs are health superheroes too.

Did you know? Scientists have discovered almost 2,000 different plant pigments, which include more than 800 flavonoids, 450 carotenoids, and 150 anthocyanins.

In this article we’re focusing on richly hued foods with our rainbow of delicious recipes to colour your day from breakfast to dessert and fill your plate with health-giving brilliance. Put colour in your menu—your health will thank you!
