You are invited to join us for the Plant-Based Rainbow Challenge!
This challenge is designed to help you get more plant diversity in your diet. Why? Plants are good for you, but different plant (and different colors of plants) are good for you in different ways.
For example, spinach and broccoli are both good for you but for different reasons. Spinach is good for you because it’s a source of vitamin k, which is crucial to blood, bone and nerve protection. A serving of spinach has over 11 times your daily requirement. Broccoli is good for you because it’s a cruciferous vegetable, it’s helps your body guard against some forms of cancer because it contains chemicals called isothiocyanates.
During this challenge, we will all strive to eat the rainbow, or to be more descriptive, to eat plants that represent all the colors of the rainbow. Don’t worry, we will be using foods that you can get at your regular grocery store.
What is the Challenge?
This 5 day event is all about embracing plants and eating more variety. We will provide recipes and a meal plan for those who want to follow along. For those that want to choose their own meals, you can use our rainbow checklist to make sure you are getting all the colors.
When is the Challenge?
We start on Monday, May 3rd but sign up early to get early access to the recipes, meal plan, shopping list and more so you are ready to go. All the details will be sent the week before we start.
How Can I Participate?
You’ll receive a meal plan which you can follow along with or just use your Rainbow Checklist to challenge yourself to eat the rainbow. Feel free to tag My Plant-Based Family on social media or join us in our Facebook group.
I’ll be sending all the information out via email. It’s the best way for me to give you all in the information, including the pdfs for the challenge. Make sure you sign up!
When you sign up (use the form below) you’ll also get my weekly plant-based tips email. It’s a free weekly email full of helpful tips and plant-based ideas!
What will we be Eating?
I know, you want to know what we will eat during this challenge. Trust me, it’s going to be good! We are working on the meal plan and will send it out before the challenge starts but it will be family friendly, completely plant-based, and use regular ingredients.
