A colorful plate of food is more visually appealing and if made with wholesome, clean-eating foods, can be much healthier for your body, too.
A good thing to remember when planning your clean-eating meals is to have a variety of color on your plate. And no, I’m not talking about Skittles or M&M’s. 😉 Remembering to eat a rainbow of colored foods gives you a great balance of nutrients at each meal. I love to eat raw veggies at lunch and I usually go for leftover meats or a low-sodium, nitrate-free deli meat for a fast option.
Colorful foods are more appealing to children, as well.
Cut up fruits and vegetables for children into fun shapes, because kids are very visual when it comes to finding foods appealing. This is a fun way for them to eat a variety of raw and nutrient-dense foods, too! Serve a platter of colorful raw veggies with some peanut butter protein dip or homemade roasted red pepper hummus for additional health benefits.
