The Racist Diet

The Racist Diet

Eat foods of the rainbow

Being a racist can simply be defined as intolerance based on race or color. No one wants to be labeled as such socially, nor with respect to our nutritional habits. What this means is the most effective and nutritionally beneficial diets are the ones that have greatest variety. They include a complete spectrum of vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients. We want to choose fish, seafood, poultry and lean cuts of meat for our protein sources and our fruit and vegetable selections should look like a rainbow.

Imagine a piece of pink salmon partnered with a spinach salad, an avocado, some nuts, a tomato, a yellow pepper, dried cranberries and yam fries on the side. Picture all of the color in this meal. Compare this to having some pasta, with an Alfredo sauce, parmesan cheese and some garlic toast. It's pretty clear which meal option provides the more complete supply of everything our bodies need while limiting that which they don't.

So the next time you are preparing a meal choose a lean protein and partner it with as much color, in terms of fruits and vegetables, as possible. And whatever you do, don't be a food racist.

I've got to go. Someone from the FBI wants to talk to me about posting racist content on the internet.
