And speaking of Rainbows, I am excited because Pride in San Diego is in mid-July which will be here before I know it.  It’s such a fun weekend!

From my last post Knock It Out & Pileups, it seems that most of you dislike the feeling of letting tasks and chores accumulate and pile up as much as I do.  It seems to invoke stress and anxiety in most of us when there’s more tasks and items to accomplish than time in which to do them.  But, such is life and the best we can do is try to remain calm.

I’m glad you’ve been knocking out some items from your to-do list lately, though.

Questions:

1. Do you try to eat the rainbow?

Plants have so many vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and trace elements in them and I just feel so much better when I am eating an abundance of fresh, mostly raw, fruits and veggies.  I can just feel the goodness entering my cells.

If I am low on eating my rainbow-colored foods and am eating more, ahem white or brown foods, I definitely feel a difference in my energy, moods, and just the overall vibe and am reminded to get back to eating more rainbow-colored foods.

2. What rainbow-colored food or recipe have you enjoyed lately? What color is your favorite to eat?

I think reds and greens are my favorite colors to eat.  From juicy red fruits like strawberries and watermelon to red pepper and tomatoes, reds rock.

Greens are probably the most beneficial color for our bodies, in my opinion.  Everything from greens leafies, lettuces, kale, chards, cucumbers, broccoli, peas, green beans, sugar snap peas, peapods, and so many more; the green family is probably the biggest and the best for us.

3. Any non-rainbow colored foods or recipes you’ve enjoyed lately?
