Your 7-day dinner plan: Eating the rainbow
If you're concerned about getting the most nutrients out of your meals, one simple tactic is to include a wide array of colors (naturally occurring ones, of course) when deciding what should go on your dinner plate. Making a conscious effort to eat a rainbow's worth of produce brings a variety of flavors, textures, and vitamins to your dinners, in addition to disproving the notion that veggies can be boring.
Summer is a particularly fabulous time of year for loading up on all kinds of colorful, in-season fruits and veggies at the market. Choose from bell peppers in different colors (look for the pretty purple ones next time you're at the farmers' market) to tomatoes of all shapes and shades. And let's not forget sweet rainbow carrots, earthy rainbow chard, or a mixed medley of blue, red, and golden baby potatoes.
Below you'll find seven dinner recipes that make the most of nature's colorful bounty. Don't forget: many veggies are interchangeable in recipes. Not a fan of sweet potatoes? Try carrots instead, which have a similar firmness and sweetness. If the texture of raw tomatoes is not your thing, replace them with fresh bell peppers slices, which are also sweet and tangy but have a crunchier bite.
