Recipe Challenges

To prevent boredom at the college cafeteria, I would often try to eat meals like an artist. I would pick one or two colors to limit my selections and enhance my creativity.

  • Yellow as easy: corn, cheese, bananas, scrambled eggs…
  • Blue was more difficult: blueberry yogurt…
  • Green was healthy: lettuce, peas, spinach, peppers, cucumbers….
  • Orange was delicious: sweet potato fries, orange bell pepper slices, orange sherbet….

To keep us out of a food rut, I’ve carried this idea over into adulthood- occasionally limiting my options to enhance my creativity.

I hope you will join me for these recipe challenges! Let me know how it goes for you!
