Just add color

Sometimes we are not having a complicated meal. I admit to fixing myself some dishes, like the above, that are as simple as they come. In this case, it is especially important to consider the color of the dish itself. The right color can make the dish taste better! I promise!

Incidentally, these vegetables are on the "okay" list of an elimination diet. An "elimination diet" is one that includes only those foods that are not likely to cause an allergic or sensitivity reaction. I am currently on one of these diets for a week - or more, depending on results - to discover if certain foods might be the culprits in the inflammation I experience (arthritis).

Dr. McDougall has a clear explanation of when you might want to try this method to sort out a long-term health issue. Take a look at this newsletter.
