The Colours of Xmas Food

As Christmas approaches, let’s look at the colours of Christmas food. Red is the colour of energy and green is the colour of balance and calmness. They are complimentary colours ie opposites on the colour wheel. Too much red food and drink on the table (and that includes seafood) and you’ll have hyperactive guests.

White foods like milk and yoghurt contain green energy. So add some green and white foods to calm everyone down. Add some purple foods for contentment. Yellow foods create happiness and orange foods aid the digestion. Blueberries, black cherries or olives help everyone sleep a little calmer after the Christmas feast.

In short, add as many coloured foods as you can to the Christmas table to create the balance that everyone needs at this time of year.
