Taste The Rainbow.. And I Don't Mean Skittles

Back in the day I was watching The Montel Williams Show and he was speaking about his struggle with multiple sclerosis. This is where I first learned the importance of adding color to your foods. I was so amazed at what I had learned. Sadly, 'back in the days', I was really picky with my foods so there was not much color in my meals; however I have grown up since then.

This is one of my favorite dishes to cook when I am in that 'health kick' kind of mood. It is not only full of color and fiber but it is actually really good and easy to make! 



Step One: Cook your chicken and season with your favorite spice. YUM! Can you smell it?


Step Two, Three, and Four: Pick out your favorite vegetables. If I had red and green peppers I would have added them also. Instead of fresh beans I used canned beans. Always rinse the beans before cooking them. This will get all the unhealthy gunk off of them. Chop your vegetables. 


Step Five: Saute the vegetables and mix the beans and chicken together. 


Step Six & Seven: Mix everything together and eat it. 




SO TASTE THE RAINBOW!!!!

  5. Colorful foods are not only wonderful to eat, but they are so nice to look at! There is nothing better than sitting down at a table whose dishes are full of prettiness. Ok, that sounded weird, but you know what I mean!
