Last week, Cassie from Blogilates.com started a fun challenge called “Eat The Rainbow”. You can learn all about the details over at her site, but basically you were supposed to eat at least one color each day of the week, like tomatoes (red) on Monday, carrots (orange) on Tuesday, bananas (yellow) on Wednesday, and so on. Sunday was sort of a ‘bonus day’, where you should try to eat all the colors of the rainbow in one day!
I usually don’t take pictures of everything I eat, but this challenge sounded like so much fun that I just had to give it a try. Remember, I love eating lots of colorful fruit and vegetables anyway.
So here is what I ate last Sunday:
I totally forgot to take a picture of my breakfast, but it was the usual fried egg on whole wheat bread, like almost every Sunday. I also had a glass of orange juice.
Lunch was noodle salad with home-made mayo and some sautéed vegetables (zucchini, red bell pepper, eggplant).
Later I had a blueberry smoothie in a bowl. And an unpictured banana.
And finally dinner, quinoa mixed with ajvar, peas and sweet corn, once again on a bed of salad greens (those were already several days old, so I had to eat them fast), topped with roasted pine nuts.
That is basically how I eat every day. And now I have to hurry, it’s time for Zumba!
