Tip From The Hearth: Add A Little Color To Your Life

Whoever tells you that eating vegetables is boring hasn't ever encountered rainbow veggies. I used these colorful carrots in a dinner salad tonight. They're local, they're pretty, and I eat another serving of vegetables. Win, win, and win.

We're often told my nutritionists and doctors to Eat The Rainbow to help ensure that we get our daily servings of fruit and vegetables (check out the Fruit and Veggies Matter site to learn how many servings you should be eating). Vegetables like carrots, potatoes, and tomatoes all come in colors beyond the expected orange, white, and red, so seek out a little variety at your local farmer's market or grocery store this summer. You might be surprised how beautiful a veggies can be!
