Colorful Eating

Summer is here and in full swing! The temperature has risen and people are wearing less clothing. The styles are free flowing and very colorful. Flip-flops, sandals, shorts, tank tops, and sun dresses are the attire for the season. Well, just like we change the way we look during the summer season, we can also change our eating habits. Besides, who wants to eat huge meals during this time of the year? I certainly do not. It is too hot!!!
There is a trend called “colorful eating” ( Eating In Color_Recipes and More ). This is a great way to ensure you are getting all of the nutrients you need in your meals every day. William Cowper coined a phrase : “Variety is the spice of life”. You certainly want to make sure you are getting a variety in your diet.

I thought I would share with you a few ideas in eating. These meals are healthy, very colorful, and  filling. 

Breakfast- I start my day with a bowl of Honeynut Cherrios with almond milk and a piece of fruit. I like the mini apples. I buy the Red Delicious, Fuji, and Gala apples and sample them all! There is a saying “ “An apple a day helps keep the doctor away”. Look at the benefits of eating an apple: 10 Reasons To Eat An Apple

I also drink a cup of coffee and a bottle of water.

Mid-Morning- I eat 7 raw almonds with a bottle of water. Almonds are great for reducing “bad” cholesterol. See the link below to learn more.

Lunch/Dinner-Usually eaten between 3 and 5 in the afternoon. I may fix a salad, sandwich, or  something light for dinner. The goal is to get fish  or salmon in my diet (2-3 times) a week. Here are some of my favorites:

Crab & Salmon Salad
Mixed greens, red cherry tomatoes
canned salmon, walnuts, sun dried cranberries,
crab (imitation-Ok), purple cabbage with a mixture
of Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette &
Asian Sesame Dressings w/ Wheat Wafers.
Divine!
                                                       

This is a slight variation of Paula Deen's Salmon Croquettes
recipe. I added a tsp of cashew milk to the egg, used safflower oil,
with herb & garlic bread crumbs instead of what is indicated.
Add boiled corn cobbette and garden salad.
You will want to slap "yo mama"!     
Salmon Croquettes




Chicken Salad
When you don't know what to do with
your left-over baked or rotisserie chicken,
add it to walnuts, cherry tomatoes,
sun dried cranberries on a bed of romaine lettuce and top
it off with a Chinese Chicken salad dressing.
Awesome!







Dessert-Treat yourself to a Pinkberry
Fruit Parfait. You will get the best of both
worlds-a dollop of your favorite yogurt
on top and bottom with your favorite fruit
and toppings blended in between! 
Yummy for the tummy!


John 6:35  (ESV)
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. Isn't it interesting how we place more emphasis on feeding the physical body which is dying every day? Some people are actually using food to fill a void in their lives that only Jesus can fill. Whatever the need or void in your life, let Jesus fill it.

Very healthy diet. I especially like the crab and salmon salad. I always try salmon salads in any restaurant I can.

Wow I love your cooking ideas!!! It is extremely important to eat healthy. Simply because if you eat healthy food you are most likely to look and feel healthy. If you continuously eat junk food you will most likely start looking and feeling like the food you are eating. To keep it simple eat a rainbow.

I like the sound of "colorful eating." I always tell my kids that if you don't want to go to the doctor office to get shot when you are sick, you must eat a lot of apple. So now my little girl loves fresh blended apple juice.

I had a great time reading your blog about eating healthy for the summer. Although i believe we should always try our best to maintain a healthy life style, atleast as best as we can. Because of my horrible eating habits for many years I have now developed high blood pressure and it isnt a nice thing to live with. This article shows I can still be healthy but I would need to take in smaller portions throughtout the entire day. Although you did mention having fish in a diet atleast 2-3 times a week is great, is one of my most difficult challenges because I am not a sea food person, although I do love chicken.

The recipes look delish minus the chicken and other animals (dead Animals). Any dish can be made just as good without having meat in it. I know everyone is different but thats just my opinion :) My motto is that if it had a heart beat or a mom or dad, I wont eat it.

I like your blog about eating healthy... I try my self to eat health when ever I can but I am always on the go. Where I work there is nothing healthy to eat. I sometimes try to take something healthy to eat but I don't have any success with that. I don't want to end up like my father and his brothers and sisters because they all have diabetes.

I have been terrible at being consistent with eating healthy. I will always attempt to go on diets but then, as always, I get side tracked. It's really frustrating to me. I love eating healthy, but I guess I love eating bad too. I do need to be consistent with eating healthy too as I grow older in age.

I think anyone can discuss this topic on a daily basis. Your posts look very healthy which is aspiring me to do the same. Lately I've been neglecting my health but it's time for me to adopt a healthier diet. My post is a little outdated because it's not summer and people are not wearing the sandals and shorts anymore. I think it's a better choice to stay in and get cozy for this season. Have a good day.

I enjoyed this post:) I really like how you were saying that 7 almonds are helpful to eat in the morning, I heard that too as well as a cup full of mixed nuts. I also liked the end with the dessert! Frozen yogurt is a great dessert and a good idea it has healthy fruit plus its also sweet, very good substitute for ice cream!!:)

I also have a bigger breakfast, usually Greek yogurt with fresh organic strawberries and blueberries or blackberries, or whatever fruit I have. Along with coffee or tea and a English muffin. I do have a question for you; are you at all concerned with eating fish now? What with Fukushima nuclear radiation disaster,gulf BP spill, etc. ocean pollution levels found in Pacific ocean fish (particularly large species i.e. tuna, Maco shark, etc.) have been found to be high to very high at this time, I have given up eating these for the time being. I hope to one day feel they are safe enough to each again. Are you modifying your consumption of fish at all? Lisa Huggins

Thank you for sharing about the daily healthy foods. We should have more people like you to motivate others to eat healthy.

I like eating healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, yogurt, chicken and fish in moderation.

In this blog I have learned that eating healthy is not as hard as I thought. The recipes are easy to do which are not time consuming and I can encourage others to try to do the same. I will try the recipes daily so I can have a better diet and be healthy. I enjoy the breakfast idea, I can do that daily.
Elizabeth Briceno said…
I thought I had commented already but obviously I did something wrong. Anyhow, I was saying that I really enjoyed your article on "Colorful Food". It sounds enticing, especially for this time of the year. It also sounds easy and practical. I will really try it because as you said, "Life happens", and sometimes we are physically exhausted which adds to our lack of resiliency. The more we've learned in class the importance of nutrition and sleep to cope with stress, the more I feel compelled to apply this knowledge; especially for those we love. Thank you for sharing your great advices and for using this means to continue to give of yourself. You have so much to give to us! God has graced you with much favor and knowledge. You know, when I've been under stress and even when not, I usually just want a cup of coffee and don't eat anything until late. I know that when I had my break-down, I hadn't sleep or ate for about two weeks straight, I was so tired and angry that no one would understand. Now I know I don't have to wait on someone to understand. As I've been getting more education, I know it will definitely help me live a better live. Again, thank you and much success to you in all your endeavors.

Elizabeth Briceno said…
This is the third comment, I think I'm doing something wrong, or you might get all three, Anyhow, I was very encouraged by your article "Colorful Foods". It was very enticing and the menu seemed simple enough to do. Now that I've gotten more education on how important it is to have a healthy body as "Life Happens", as you said, I realize the mistakes I've done in the past. Before my break-down five years ago, I hadn't been eating or sleeping for two weeks. No wonder! Thank you for writing on subjects that are beneficial to us and I pray that you continue to have special favor so that you may see all the right doors open-up to you to continue to do what you love best...and that is to share your knowledge and be a blessing to those around you. You sure have been for me and my classmates this fall semester 2014! Thank you!

I am with you on small meals during the summer, who wants to feel all bloated on this heat. My favorites are a Caesar's salad with chicken and add walnuts for a real zeal. My second favorite in this heat is tuna on lettuce with vinaigrette and oil, it gives it a real punch.

happy summer thoughts back at ya.

I think its great to be aware of what you eat! I get a huge container of Costco brand almonds and carry a small zip lock bag of them with me everywhere. They're great for when I'm craving something salty or need a quick snack to keep me going.

Great meal ideas! Everything sounds delicious and easy to whip up. I am very lucky to have a little boy that would prefer greens and fruit to sugary sweets but I am still always looking for new ideas to try and get even more in. Also, I am a huge believer in portion control. I have never been big on dieting so that helps me keep my eating habits in check.

Your 1 day meal agenda is super healthy and looks very colorful. Colors feed the mind and soul. I love to eat healthy foods but just like any human i cry the fatty stuff sometimes. I love to eat nuts. i carry some with me always on a daily basis. i love yogurt. and i love salads. Specially in the summer my body temperature is usually very hot and to cool off i try to consume cool foods that wont make my temperature any worst. I will keep your recipes in mind. =)

No almonds, cashews, pistachios, or peanuts.

And do you have any tips for students on the go?
For people that don't have time to cook healthy meals?

Also, is there a reason that you replaced dinner with a lunch/dinner?

Awesome, I think that never is too late to change bad habits, we need to help our body to perform the most efficient possible.

A combination of good habits and exercise will help to prevent many diseases.

Lately I’ve enjoyed eating at this place called Poquito Mas. Oh my goodness, the steak burrito is sooooo good! And lately I haven’t been eating very healthy. It’s been a years since I’ve watched what I ate.
One thing I do is I try to have salmon at least once a week but I think your goal of 2-3 times a week seems like a better goal, I will try to do that as well. I also use to try to eat an apple a day, but for some reason I stopped. I think I just got bored of it. I will try to get back on eating apples again. Thanks for the post. This helped me to remind myself how important it is to eat healthy. :)

A few years ago, I changed my lifestyle on how I eat. I love eating healthy, and the title colorful eating is perfect for this blog post. My son has allergies so we had to revamp the way we eat. It was for the best. My family has never been this health. We have tons of energy, and I dont even miss the sugar that I was consuming.

I start my day with some exercise on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 5 am, then when I am done I my first meal is a hot tea wih alovera and a protein shake. This helps me start my day with energy and gives me a little of recovery from my workout. Then throughout the course of the day I eat some small snacks like: granola bars, fruits, or a salad to fill me up. I make sure that I drink a lot of water, right now I am at 5 water bottles trying to increase to 8 waterbottles a day. The thing I struggle with is when I am so busy I start eating a lot of junk food that I know I need to stop, It is a struggle for me. But I try my best to stay healthy and be active everyday, at least walk from school to my house everytime I can.

I try well not my hardest to eat healthy. I enjoy Heart Healthy Chicken Noodle Soup with half a sandwich (turkey is my fav). It is tough eating healthy for me because I wake up mid afternoon so breakfast has past and so has lunch.. with a empty stomach. A bad choose I make is going out to eat. Which I know is really bad but I hate making food! But your dishes look so amazingly delish! I think I might steal them :) which its hard to even carry a meal bc im always on the go and no car and just a purse on me. so its challenging.

I strongly agreed that colorful eating habits are always the great way to provide vitamins and minerals enough for our body. Indeed, a variety kind of yellow or orange colored vegetables helps us reduce the risk of developing cancer as carrots, yam, or corn. Moreover, the green colored vegetables, the wonderful source of calcium, help our bond stronger and keep our vision sharper. The blue or purple fruits help us maintain flexible blood vessels as blueberries and blackberries as well as the red colored foods protect us against cancer and heart disease as potato or watermelon. Therefore, colorful eating is the healthy nutrients needed in our daily meals.

This is a beautiful display of healthy recipes recommended my Dr. D. What a colorful format and intriguing blog. I also like the emphasis of Jesus.

I have trouble adapting to a healthy eating habit as my eating habits are terrible. I think these recipes are a good way to start eating healthy. The one recipe that I really want to try is the Chicken Pita w/ Red Grapes. I had a great time looking through all of your blogs, but this blog stood out to me because of my eating habits. Thanks DrD for the recipes and useful information!
