The Garden (Five for Fighting)

Tiny Steps Tuesday : Eat Your Vitamins

My aunt, a nutritionist, always says that we should make our plates look like rainbow.  The colors found in veggies are a result of the nutrients they contain, and having a variety of colors means that you're getting a variety of nutrients.  The chart below shows how the color relates to the vitamins.

Your challenge this week is to eat a vegetable (or fruit) at every meal!!  Build a rainbow on your plate, at least once each day.  Instead of having a caesar salad, which is all green, have a garden salad with lots of color!

Take it to the Next Level

If you're already a veggie lover, challenge yourself to have two servings from each color category each day!
