Taste the Rainbow

We've hear it all the time: We should fill our plates with color to get the best variety of nutrients. Filling a plate with all beige food just doesn't cut it.

I've been taking a picture of everything I have eaten for the past week -- and I mean everything -- and I see a trend. My rainbow isn't there. I eat a lot of beige, including shades of white, eggshell, cream, brown, yellow and tan. Looking at all of the pictures back-to-back-to-back just isn't very appetizing, so I can only imagine that it's not very good for me either.

So for now, I'm not going to make some drastic goal about reducing calories or anything like that. For now, for the next week or so, my goal is simple: Eat more colorfully!
