Purple is the new green

Some days my green juices are purple.

Purple Juice & Flower Friend

It was beautiful, local purple cabbage from my Laughing Stock Farm winter CSA* box that turned my purple green.  Full of flavonoids, calcium, vitamin C & E, as well as a source of protein, what I love best about purple cabbage is that it is purple.

Pretty simple, right?  I try to make sure that I have lots of variety in the color of foods that I get to enjoy because diversity in food means strength in health.  Keeping my meals colorful means I get to eat food that is as bright as the clothes that I wear on the outside.

I like to think I am keeping everything in a fabulous rainbow balance.

    I love purple juice! I juice purple cabbage with green apples and a bit of lime and the indol3 in it are great for fighting disease. Thanks for posting.

      Ooo – some lime would be delish!

      And hurray for another CSA supporter!
