This tasty lunch literally has every color of the rainbow – red from the pepper, orange from the carrots, yellow from the savoy, green from the scallions and blue/purple (one category in the nutrition world) from the red cabbage. (Isn’t it funny that red cabbage and onions are actually purple?) But I digress…
By eating the color of the rainbow every day, you ensure that your body gets all of the nutrients it needs to thrive. Since my 5 month old still gets the bulk of his nutrition from my body, this makes me a happy mommy.
Your fork is waiting.
