Eating the Rainbow – Your health depends on it.

metabolic balance encourages you to eat a variety of foods during your three daily meals so that you are getting the most nutritional value from your daily food consumption.

Adding a variety of foods to your diet offers your body the nutrients it needs to support your body and keeps you from getting bored of your meals.

Below is a breakdown of the foods by colour.  Check your metabolic balance plan and see how many colours you have. If you don’t have every colour, you can start experimenting with the food rainbow in phase 3/4.  Before you start experimenting with your food, discuss the food rainbow with your metabolic balance coach.  Your coach will love helping you find new foods to add to your metabolic balance plan and may even have a recipe or two that you can use.
