Taste The Rainbow

It’s only Tuesday? Seriously? My week is so off already.

Breakfast was good and filling and held me over until lunch when I had a rainbow in a bowl.



  • romaine
  • spinach
  • yellow garden tomato
  • orange garden tomato
  • red garden tomato
  • corn
  • pinto beans
  • avocado

Good, colorful, and filling. I also think that guacamole is getting spicier – it had a kick today! Nick and I ran a few errands at lunch and got some local bagels to have this week. I got some whole wheat everything (yum) and Nick found some chocolate chip ones one sale. I can’t wait!

Work was work – we did take a fun break today to talk football and I brought in some of the leftover cookie-topped-brownies to share. I had one while gabbing with coworkers  :)

Finished work on a good note and headed home, which included reading the entire way in the car. I’m hooked on reading again! I seem to get in these phases where I read tons of books and can’t get enough…and then I burn out and don’t read anything for a few months again. I’m happy to say that I’m in the hooked stage. I have a list of books I want from the library and am hoping to go this week.

Dinner was super easy tonight. Leftovers really are my best friend some days.


I roasted some broccoli in the oven, then heated up the leftover pork from last night and a few more lentil/rice cakes.


Yup, still good  :)

I’ve got a big night ahead of reading – yay!

  1. i for sure did! every veggie under the sun plus fruit! yummmy…dinner looks fab!

  2. I had my rainbow today! My salad had summer squash, cucumber, tomato, romaine lettuce, baby spinach, baby carrots, cottage cheese and cucumber yogurt dressing with dill. I think I almost liked looking at it more than I liked eating it!

    Sorry, I don’t know how to insert video. I tried the other day myself and couldn’t figure it out. Let me know if you find out.

  3. I kept saying that today too, “it’s only Tuesday?! What??” Ay ay ay.

    Your salad looks lovely! (and abundant!!)

  4. your rainbow is so perty!!!!!

  5. Yay for rainbow meals! Love the profile pic of your salad. Of course I die for avocado.

    Let’s see. I had a pink berry smoothie for Breks, a green salad for lunch (with orange, red, and more green) and for dinner I had sweet potato bisque (yellow).

  6. Hmm… my pizza had scallions, bacon, gorgonzola, and roasted tomatoes… so that’s at least green, blue, and red. Can crust count as yellow? Ha ha

  7. I love your rainbow!!

  8. Your rainbow looks super yummy! So do those lentil cakes. I kinda ate a rainbow today… a little lacking on the yellow/reds, though ;)
