Add More Color to Your Plate All Day Long

Sometimes we get stuck in a rut when it comes to food. We get comfortable with certain meals or choose ones that are easy and quick to prepare. Well, it’s time to become adventurous and add a splash of color to your daily meals. Try meal planning over the weekend or during a time that is a little less busy. This can help you prepare a grocery list of things you will need for your new colorful recipes. There are tons of new and exciting fruits and vegetables out there! Get ready to try some new foods – maybe you’ll find a new favorite.

Below are our simple tips to add color to each meal of the day.
