Easy dishes for all occasions for colorful health.

It's been known for some time that colorful foods and spices help to boost nutrition and promote good health, but how do we do this without crunching our way through yet another boring salad of peppers and carrots? Rainbow Food has the answer: 50 easy and delicious recipes for all tastes using standard grocery foods. The only change to make will be fewer potatoes in the grocery bag and more vibrant fresh fruits and vegetables.

The book opens with a brief description of the three most powerful nutrients in colorful foods--chlorophyll, carotenoids, polyphenols--and what their roles are in good health. This is followed by instructions on how to create natural food coloring for food, featuring the 50 recipes, many of them using vegetables and fruits past their prime yet nevertheless edible and nutritious.
