You don't need skittles or other yucky candy to taste the full range of colours... all you need is some fruit and veg. Here is some of the colourful and wintry food we've been eating.
Avocado, tomato, cucumber and raw corn salad. Avocadoes are at the peak of amazingness right now, and they are so creamy and good that we've been having them at least once a day (on the weekend we had avocado for breakfast, lunch, and dinner).
Green zucchini, sauteed with oil, salt and pepper; a grilled tomato half; eggplant bharta; and purple potato patties (purple sweet potatoes mashed with corn and coriander).
More purple potatoes, paired this time with japanese pumpkin and a spinach-cream sauce to make lasagne.
Leftover lasagne made a reappearance the next night, along with some bright red, juicy tomatoes stuffed with silverbeet (swiss chard), carrot and breadcrumbs.
And when you need some hot pink in your life, try some grapefruit juice.
Now, the only colour I'm missing is blue... but it's been so cold that my fingers and toes are maybe a little blue. Okay, I'm exaggerating a little, but it's cold enough that my normally liquid coconut oil under the bathroom sink has turned completely solid--now that's cold.
