It’s July! And while the 4th of July has already passed (I can’t believe it!) I am still soaking up all things red, white and blue. Something about red, white and blue feels like SUMMER to me.
A recent trend (at least in my world) has been to encourage eating a diet with a variety of colors! While this is pleasing to the eye and pretty to look at, the colors in foods are actually associated with their antioxidants. Antioxidants work to get rid of disease-causing free-radicals in our bodies, and they help us to be as healthy as we can!
I’ve created a roundup with my fellow dietitians sharing delicious and nutritious red, white, and blue recipes. Enjoy!
