I see it now!!! They have it tucked away among the St. Patrick icons. My Irish ancestors must be disappointed that I didn't see it among the pot o' gold! emoticon

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

since adopting a vegan lifestyle, I eat the rainbow daily. I often think of you, Val, when I'm enjoying the colors (SP doesn't have a rainbow icon!)

Great topic, Val!!! I will have to read this message of rainbow colors of veggies and fruits to my 1st grader. It would be a great way to teach kids at schools like that.
I will work on making rainbows on my family's plates. That's the goal for this month!

My lunch salad had onion, tomato, zuchini and carrot! I'm thinking squash for dinner will round that out.

Your goal this month should be to eat the rainbow! Here is a breakdown of the importance of color in our foods:

Red: These foods have lycopene in them. They are beneficial for for certain cancers, especially prostate. They are also powerful antioxidants. Examples: beets, cherries, watermelon, red peppers, and tomatoes.

Orange and Yellow: These foods have carotonoids in them. They are good for vision, immune health, heart health and are a good source of Vitamin A, C, and Folate. Examples: carrots, yellow peppers, pineapples, peaches and butternut squash.

Green: These foods have a pigment called chlorophyll giving it the green color. These foods have lutein in them. They are high in magnesium and folate. They are beneficial to reducing cancer, improving eye health. Examples: spinach, broccoli, green grapes, limes, and avacados.

Blue and Purple: These foods have some of the highest antioxidant values protecting your cells from damage. Some studies show that eating blueberries can help with memory and aging! Examples: Blueberries, blackberries, plums and eggplant.

White: (not breads!) These fruits and veggies contain allicin which is beneficial for heart health, cholesterol, blood pressure and stomach cancer. They are also a good source of potassium. Examples: garlic, onions, bananas, and parsnips.
