Rainbow Salad March 12, 2016

by Our Recipes

Just as our Registered Dietitian Rebecca Lewis always says, “Eat the rainbow!” No, we don’t mean the candy (as tempting as that sounds)! Making sure your plate is bright and colorful is a quick and easy check that you’re eating relatively healthy. Think about the colors of fruits and vegetables versus starches and fatty meats! When your dish represents every shade of the rainbow, chances are you’re getting valuable nutrients and vitamins while enjoying a beautiful meal.
