My daily watercolors that I've been painting and posting for #the100dayproject have given me a new appreciation for color. I love the vibrant and rich contrasts that can be created with whole foods, knowing that each color has a specific antioxidant for optimal health. This is why we encourage everyone to 'eat the rainbow.'
Tonight I made this roasted beet and orange salad and paired it with a tangy citrus vinaigrette:
- juice from 1 lemon
- 2 Tbsp organic honey
- 1/4 c. olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
The tangy citrus paired well with the sweetness of the roasted beets, and the walnuts added a delicious texture to the salad. Incorporating more colors into your meals is an easy way to add more nutrition and joy into your day... ENJOY!
