My homegrown tomatoes, leeks and courgettes. This is going to turn into a proud ratatouille for me! When NT’s or dieticians talk about “eating a rainbow” or lots of different colours throughout the day it’s because in nature different colours in foods have different health benefits. So eating a wide variety of coloured foods throughout the day increases the amount of nutrients you are getting into yourself.
I always ask my clients focus on this mentality rather than the old and tired “5 a day”! Public health England figures show that less 1/3 of us manage to achieve this anyway, so rather than obsessing about numbers this might be more achievable by making your plate colourful!
Eating the same thing (eg eating toast for breakfast then sandwiches for lunch) is not going to provide you with the nutrients your body craves - no single food can. So fill your life and plate with colour - try and get your children interested in eating a rainbow - and watch how good you feel 🤸♂️🌈🤸♂️
