Freshen Up Friday

"Eat the rainbow!"  That was the advice from the dietitian at our ladies' fellowship in February.  When you look down at your plate, it should be very colorful.  Those colors tell you you're eating nutritious foods.  Green broccoli, yellow corn, red tomatoes, orange peppers, purple cabbage - each colorful food adds some other good thing into your diet!  If you look down and see white chicken, white potatoes and rice, the very lack of pigment will tell you need to add some other foods to your meal!

That simple piece of advice has helped me even with breakfast.  Don't just eat one fruit - eat a yogurt and add strawberries and blueberries in it.  Drink a glass of orange juice.  For lunch, add a tomato, lettuce and avocado to your tortilla wrap.  Throw in a handful of grapes for dessert and look at the rainbow you've created!

So, freshen up your plate by making it as colorful as the rainbow!

Hope you'll be in church Sunday!  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.  Hebrews 10:25

Be refreshed,
