our series of eat-in-color (finding ways to enjoy naturally colorful foods within our day) continues with purple/blue foods! our task is to find a way to have a purple/blue food at every meal throughout the day, eventually leading up to eating a rainbow of foods all in one day. have you been following our series? (please see our previous eat-in-color posts on orange and red foods)
so here’s our purple/blue food recipes and meal options, and best part – they are all eligible for #MeatlessMonday. 😉 what are your favorites?
food facts via equinox:
the color: purple/blue
the picks: eggplant, purple cabbage, purple kale, purple cauliflower, purple potatoes, purple carrots, prunes, raisins (also blackberries, blueberries, concord grapes, figs*, purple onions)
the payoff: these deep, dark choices protect cells from damage and stave off cancer, heart disease, and have anti-aging, brain-boosting properties.
