    Good morning Judy and everybody.
    Breakfast was Kashi go lean and an orange (orange).

    Lunch will be spinach (green), carrots (orange) tomatoes (red), onion (white) and diced peppers (green) w chicken.

    No idea on dinner tonight but I am shopping today and will get something purple or blue or snack. This challenge has shown me how lacking I am in this color veggie/ fruit.

    Hope everybody has a good day!
    Rachael...under construction.

    Judy, I'd have joined in today, but I was shopping and baking all day long. Literally. I didn't eat anything till dinner tonight. And I feel bad that really, the only color in my day was the strawberries in the frosting, lol

    I'll do better tomorrow. I've had my cake and frankly, that's all I want of it. It's really good and not cloyingly sweet, but I just have had enough.
    I think tomorrow I'll start with egg n greens because I'm pretty sure by then, my body will be craving the "good stuff".

    Hi Kim
    I was rather busy the last few days myself and barely got this rainbow thing posted It is a good thing to think about if you get enough vegies and fruits in a rainbow of colors there is less room to eat other stuff .
    I saw your cake it was very beautiful
    was there a crown or Tiara on top of that cake in one of the photos?

    Yes, the theme was Diva because Monica turned 21 today. I purchased the diva plates, napkins and hot pink forks. but couldn't find a suitable centerpiece for the cake.. for some reason all the stores were out of #2 candles to put 2 1 on the cake so I had to figure something else.
    I found this tiara in the Dollar General,when I went in to pick up corn syrup for the ganache. It's a doll's tiara, has little hair combes on the back ends which I buried into the cake to make it stay, lol
    Cost me all of 30 cents for this cute little Diva centerpiece!
