I read once by a Dr. Rocine that one should strive to eat a "rainbow" of food each day thus eliminate the need for vitamin supplements. That was over 25 years ago. It makes sense. I try to stick to it with each and every meal--sneaking in color even if only in trace amounts. My family is healthier as a result and no less for the wear. Enjoy this nutritiously delicious Meal!
