This month Marianne’s theme is Multi-Coloured. She talks about the power of colour, how it affects us psychologically in particular. For me food is the thing that must be coloured, for somehow I cannot feel enthusiastic about a bland looking meal. I immediately want to rush out and find some green parsley or a tiny red tomato or a carrot stick to embellish it with. We know that coloured foods are high in beneficial nutrients …. but can the colours themselves helps us?
Here are some suggestions about how coloured foods may affect you psychologically.
Beneficial Food Colors
Red : Gives extra energy, heals lethargy and tiredness
Orange: Creates optimism and change, heals grief and disappointment
Yellow: Encourages laughter, joy and fun, heals depression
Green: improves physical stamina , heals panic
Blue: Brings peace and relaxation, helps concentration and heals anxiety
Indigo: Puts back structure into life, heals insecurity
Purple : Promotes leadership, heals and calms the emotionally erratic.
Living in the home of an artist means I am surrounded with glorious paintings, not only his, but also those of our children and grandchildren. Edwina’s paints are called “Rainbow Paints”and she makes good use of them.
