Part 2, Lesson 6: Eating the Rainbow

Part 2: "I Don't Know Anything About Food"
Lesson 6: Eating the Rainbow

This might be a little scary for people who are used to eating prepackaged convenience food, but you all need to hear it: you need to eat colorfully.

Are the things on your plate usually a shade of brown or beige?  Maybe a little orange processed cheese in there too?  Yeah, I thought so.

I bet you're tired all the time.  Overweight.  It's hard to get out of bed in the morning.  Hard to think clearly.

Your Homework
Go to the grocery store.  Stand in the produce section.  Look around you.  Look at all the colors.  Now pick one of the center aisles of the store.  Look at the packaging.  Bright colors!  Words in starbursts!  Friendly, eye-catching fonts!  Look at the food itself: beige.

You want to eat foods that are ingredients, not foods that contain ingredients.
