I’m finally back from San Francisco and Orlando, so I am back to the grind of spinning and cooking up new recipes for you guys!
I wanted to share a fun healthy recipe for the 4th of July!
Colorful dishes are the healthiest. The more colorful, the better… and no, I’m not talking about Froot Loops. Vividly colored fruits and vegetables are filled with flavonoids and polyphenols; powerful antioxidants that will support your retina, mitochondria, brain cells, and aid the removal of toxins. You can get your daily dose from vibrant veggies such as beats, carrots, peppers, and red cabbage, as well as brightly colored berries, and fruits like peaches, oranges, etc.
To achieve optimal health, aim for 3 different colors of fruits and veggies everyday!
Not only are these kebabs filled with important vitamins and minerals, but they also tally up to a total of 4 different veggies (tomatoes, bell peppers, potatoes, and onion) of 5 different colors! Feed your brain, not just your tummy!
Rainbow Veggie kebabs
4 cherry tomatoes
1 red bell pepper
1 orange bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
2 mini white potatoes
2 mini purple potatoes
1 red onion
Wash and shop veggies. Place veggies in a container or large ziplock bag with olive oil and vinegar (enough to coat the veggies). Let the vegetables marinate for at least 2 hours. Place veggies on each skewer in rainbow order. Place each skewer directly on the barbecue and grill for 6-8 minutes per side or until veggies are tender.
