Over ﬁve weeks, I’ve shared with you the beneﬁts of eating a colourful diet. Just as seeing a rainbow in the sky stops me from whatever I’m doing to appreciate its beauty, I slow down and enjoy my meal far more when it’s colourful. I feel happier too.
Happy is healthy, but so are all those phytonutrients like anti-inﬂammatory bromelain found in orange and yellow foods, detoxifying chlorophyll in all green foods, powerful antioxidant curcumin in the orange spice turmeric and anti-aging resveratrol in red foods. That’s some serious motivation to eat more colour!
Here’s one of my family’s favourite ways to enjoy a speedy lunch or dinner and include all colours of the rainbow.
My daughters love sushi and rice wraps when we are on the go, so one day last summer we tried to make these and found that they love to create their own, with guidance from me of course (or it would be carrot wraps). You’ll ﬁnd rice wraps in health food stores, near the prepared sushi section of some supermarkets or in the ethnic food aisle.
