Want to have a little bit of fun today here on the blog? We'd love to hear your list of favorite foods for each color of the rainbow! I wonder how many of us will have similar fruits and vegetables on our lists, and how many of us will come up with vegetables and fruits that others have overlooked?

Here are our lists!

Jim likes the following fruits/vegetables the best:

Red: ?Watermelon

Orange: ?Oranges

Yellow: Bananas

Green: ?Kale

Blue: ?Blueberries

Violet: Kale

And here's Wendi's list of favorite veggies/fruits:

Red: ?Cayenne Peppers

Orange: ?Oranges

Yellow: ?Lemons

Green: ?Kale

Blue: ?Blueberries

Violet: ?Purple Kale

Jim and I had some similar favorites. For me, when I wrote "lemons" on my list, I realized yet again how much I adore that fruit! It makes me happy and it feels good when I eat lemons.

Please share your list in the comments! It will be fun reading what your rainbow assortment of favorite vegetables and fruits includes!
