What Is The Rainbow Diet?
Quite simply, the Rainbow Diet, is an organizing framework to put your body, psychology, eating, and living together into one view. This is important, because many nutrition paradigms or diets are fragmented. They see the foods you eat, but not your lifestyle and how everything is interconnected. The Rainbow Diet provides a real-time navigation map that gets you where you need to be with food, taking into consideration all aspects of your life. I’ll use the colors of the rainbow to help guide you through:
Red for the grounding, physical issues of your body Orange for your creative, playful, emotional side Yellow for the bright radiance of your intellect Green for the expansion of your heart Aquamarine to represent your personal truths and speaking Indigo for the deeper knowledge and intuition we all carry White for your spiritual self, or your ability to be connected with something greater
The color green represents the healing qualities of love. It is referred to as the LOVE, signifying our compassion and devotion to ourselves and others. The LOVE in your body nourishes systems of expansion, opening, and giving. These include armpits, arms, blood vessels, breasts, hands, heart, lungs, lymphatic system, shoulders and wrists. The LOVE is connected to these physiological activities breathing, circulation, and oxygenation.
