I often hear that we should "eat a rainbow", and it's what I tell my kids too.
So, how many different colours did you eat today?

Today has been a little indulgent so perhaps not the best day to answer this but here goes - white and orange (poached eggs on toast), white and green (garlic prawns with rice and rocket), yellow (caramelised banana crepe.
Yep, definitely wasn't eating a ranbow today.
Dark Pink - watermelon
Light brown - choc chip cookies
White and yellow - egg
Green - pear
white and pink - yogurt and fruit
9 or 10....... but that includes meat so probably discount one! I think the rainbow is just meant to be for fruit and veg, though I could be wrong.
I think that yes it is supposed to refer just to fruit and vegies...but that's okay - I'm breaking the rules and it can apply to everything!
Hooray! I'm all for breaking rules!!
I had red, yellow, brown, white not sure of any other.
Yesterday I spent the day supporting a labouring woman (I'm a childbirth doula) - I don't think that I ate a single vegie all day!
yellow and brown (eggs and baked beans for breakfast)
brown and white (macdonald's for lunch)
Lots of brown coffee!!
Today hasn't been any better.
Normally I aim to eat as many different colours as I can over the course of the day!
Yellow - Bananas and Pineapple
Green - Bell pepper in my breakfast :P
Orange - Carrot
Brown - Coffee
White - Rice
Now I need to go and get lunch to add some more colours to my body!
