Boost Nutrition with Color

Color is nature’s way of showing us what fruits and vegetables are good for us. These recipes mix and match fresh hues and textures to ensure both nutrients and flavor.

You’ve heard it before: in order to get all of the nutrients that you need, it is necessary to eat a wide variety of foods of different colors. In other words, eat the rainbow (not the candy kind). That can feel like a chore, if you think about it in the wrong way. But SL is here to help! We’ve compiled a bunch of easy, healthy recipes that make healthy eating feel like a joy, instead of a chore. Healthy vegetable recipes abound; we’re pretty fond of our roasted asparagus salad. But easy, healthy recipes aren’t confined to just vegetables; try our three-fruit smoothie tomorrow morning to start the day off right. Need a great, light lunch recommendation? Try a sweet salad with fresh pears and Asian sesame dressing–you won’t find an easier healthy recipe. Dinnertime? Baby carrot soup spiked with a smoked adobo sauce has our vote. Whatever your palatal preferences, we have a colorful, easy, and healthy recipe for you.
