“Eat the rainbow.” That’s what I tell most women when they ask me for a quick tip for weight loss and health. Why eat the rainbow? Because it’s a simple way of including a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet that will ensure you get you the vitamins and minerals you need.
It’s not difficult to do. In fact, you can eat the rainbow in this delicious, easy to make Rainbow Vegan lunch.
