Rose and I sometimes like to play this hypothetical game where we choose a color and then list the types of food we would be able to eat if we could only eat foods that color. For example if the color was red you could eat red apples, strawberries, red peppers, tomato sauce, etc. etc. It’s rather fun and addicting although sometimes the yummiest colored food don’t lend well to a very healthy spectrum of foods (i.e. brown for nut butters and chocolate except what fruit or veg is brown..? Potatoes? lots and lots of potatoes).Green would be pretty nice to have because you would get some leaves, avocado, green apples, Brussels sprouts, pesto… lots of fresh foods, although sweets would be difficult to come by (Avocado pudding??). Although, now that I think of it if you like green apple flavored things you would be able to have those lollipops and hard candies. Green apple was my go to flavor for candy – especially with jolly ranchers, so I would be pretty smitten.And if you chose green you would get to drink green smoothies, like this refreshing grapefruit green smoothie we have here. I mean just look at that lovely shade of green – doesn’t it make you so thirsty? There is something so refreshing about a green smoothie, especially after a workout – I can just feel the health benefits running through me. Sometimes I wonder if I’m too healthy at times… then I go eat chocolate and forget what I’m thinking about.Anyways, back to green foods, in particular this green smoothie. It has spinach, grapefruit (yum!!), some banana and some mango and some coconut water and that’s it! Grapefruits are fast going out of season so I wanted to take advantage of them while I can, so I’ve started adding grapefruit juice to my smoothies. It adds a nice twist to the whole smoothie, and I wonder why I’ve haven’t been doing this all winter.Grapefruit Green Smoothie
Simple as simple can be. I guess I could do pretty well if I only had to eat/drink green foods…
What color of food would you chose if you could only eat one color of food?
