I agree, I have been more aware of the variety of fruits and veggies I'm getting, rather than just the number.

And, as much as I like red wine, I'm not counting it in my color count. It does have some benefit, but for this purpose, I think I would leave it out of the rainbow count!

I did pretty good on getting my rainbow most days and on a few days, I did get all the colors.

Today, I've already had all the colors

Red: tomatoes & red bell pepper
green: bell pepper
yellow: banana
orange: orange
purple: onion

Don't know about you guys, but it sure makes me think about the different colors of fruit & veggies and helps me to get at least 5 servings a day.

I think I did pretty good on the rainbow this weekend as well:

yellow: banana, corn
red: pepper,red meat (only once, for protein)
green: grapes, zuchinni, green beans
purple: onion, wine (does that count?)

I realize I didn't get in any orange. Gonna fix that this week. I really like the rainbow challenge!

Living well is the best revenge

I don't think I got my rainbow on Sunday, no purple in the house! and we never left it...

I believe I got the other colors though, red: tomatoes, salsa, strawberries, orange: cantelope, yellow: banana, green: broccoli.

Mon-Wed: I make a smoothie every morning w/: strawberries, spinach, grapes and blackberries. (red, green, purple)

I have broccoli or asparagus for lunch veggie, more green,

snack: baby carrots: orange.

I had a yellow onion for dinner sauteed w/ mushrooms: yellow.

That ought to do it!

I hit the rainbow on Saturday (although the blueberries for purple came with a very large piece of chocolate cake - date night). Not as good on Sunday.

As for something nice about myself ... I keep picking myself up and moving on with beating myself up too bad.

Kim, stuffed pepper soup sounds good. How do you make it? I love making soups!!

Yesterday, I did really good,

yellow - banana & pineapple
red - red bell & tomato
green - spinach & green bell
orange - baby carrots
purple - raisins & red onion (would that be considered red or purple?)

Looking back at other days, I always seem to be missing purple & orange. By challenging myself I was able to get those two colors in both days.

cool! I had red, yellow, orange and green bell PePPers and yellow corn, and red tomatoes in my favorite dish, stuffed PePPer souP. I love eating it and making it because its so colorful with all the different colors, Like a rainbow all by itself.
I also had Pitted Prunes not sure if they could be classified as PurPle even though they were on the box. they were more brown than anything else. I also had yellow bananas and red sPaghetti sauce. Wow, i really ate good. wish I could do that everyday! kim

added banana and carrots yesterday, to complete the rainbow. Also added eggplant for another purple, salad and green peppers for more green, tomato soudp for another red, and I also had califlower and onion which are white, so I guess that doesn't fit in the rainbow!

So far today I have: banana = yellow, strawberries/apple = red.

highest weight ever:202, SP starting weight: 143

Somthing nice about myself? Hmmmm. I spent the last 2 days rethinking my healthy lifestyle plan, and have made some changes that are more in line with ME. Go ME. lol.

After last weekend's rainbow challenge, I dug around in my cupboard and have found the color purple. Of course, it helped to read what everyone else ate for purple. I am ready. No more "hot" rainbows for me. I have the full spectrum ready and waiting!

Happy Halloween!!

Last weekend's challenge worked out pretty well, so let's do another one for this weekend.

Say something nice about yourself and eat a rainbow of fruit & veggies (a rainbow consisting of red, yellow, orange, green & purple).

Now, post your challenges and come back on Monday and let us know how you did on your rainbow.

Good luck and Happy November!!
