Food and Color

Food, color and our bodies have the light spectrum in common. Rainbows result from light refraction after a shower. Plants produce colorful herbs, fruits, and vegetables from light and water. Our bodies are fused with color at each energy center in the exact same order as refracted light.

The phrase “eat a rainbow” has become more popular in its reference to eating fruits and vegetables of all colors.

The first reference I heard about “eating colors” was Dr. Edwin Babbitt who wrote about color in the late 19th century. His work more specifically involved using colors to heal internal organs.

Others preceded Dr. Babbitt and this work is under review to find how far back information on food and color originates.

Another name for eating colors is the Rainbow Diet which developed a lot of guidelines that could be applied to any food plan:

+ select organic produce, and

+ reduce refined, processed and genetically modified products.

You can plan a complete intake over three meals using food and color to get the essential nutrients and dietary fiber you require.
