You've come to the right place! Eating right is easy; just follow a few simple mostly color-based rules and you'll be dining high in no time.
If it's green, it's healthy for you
Just like it sounds! If you're colorblind, and can't tell green from blue, ask your neighbor. If it's growing, it's usually green. Foods and food-like substances in this group include:
anything with green food coloring in it.
*I know! I was surprised too, but it was green, so what can you do?
If it's white, it has no calories
This one may come as a shock, but if you come from the (proper) school of thought that the colors are where all the calories live, this makes perfect sense. Luckily, there are a LOT of white or nearly colorless foods out there:
string cheese (mozzarella)
boiled eggs (the yellow yolk is on the inside, so it doesn't count)
Crisco (the regular stuff, not the butter flavored)
extra white-white vanilla frosting
If it's red, it's awesome and therefore healthy for you as WELL as having no calories
Red, being the best color in the world is available for consumption in any food. Examples include:
shrimp (close enough, anyway)
red velvet cake
A few other rules of thumb are:
Blue is kind of unnatural, so approach with caution. Orange has some red in it, so it's all right on occasion. And stay away from tequila. It's not your friend.
