A little tip I thought I'd throw out there for everyone this morning is to have a nice colorful plate of food at your meals.  The more colors that you have on your plate the healthier the food is most of the time.  Also when their isn't much color on your plate then the food most of the time isn't very healthy.  I have noticed while eating that most people around me have plates that are white and brown and mine is much more colorful.  A few examples would be red, green, purple, and orange just to name a few.  For red you could have tomatoes, apples, watermelon, cherries, strawberries, bell peppers etc.  Green could be granny smith apples,  honeydew melon, grapes, lettuce, spinach, green beans, avocados, bell peppers, etc.  For purple try having plums, eggplant, beets, grapes, red cabbage etc.  Orange could be squash, bell peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, yams, oranges, cantaloupe, etc.  These are just a few examples of colorful foods that are quite obviously much healthier than plain colored foods.  So I would suggest for everyone to add some color to your meals which are in most cases much healthier and in my opinion a lot better tasting!!!
