It’s all about the colour yellow at the moment. The sun has been shining, the daffodils are out in number and those little fluffy chickens that you can use to decorate Easter bonnets are dominating the shelves. Yellow sits between orange and green on the spectrum of visible light and for us, that’s a pretty cool place to hang out. It is the brightest colour we can see and the one that attracts our attention more than any other colour – so one to avoid for those about to embark on a covert top secret mission! Yellow represents fun, sunshine, hope, youth and joy; and, according to a recent survey, is the colour that 70% of Brits associate with happiness. If you were dubious at the start about a blog post dedicated to the colour yellow, we hope by now that you are already scanning for ways to add more yellow into your life. Allow us to help!
The OutdoorCureOnline Guide to adding more yellow to your life:
1) Lemons – get slicing and add to water for an extra zing in the morning!
2) Bananas – our favourite go to energy boosting snack (so much so that we will be dedicating a whole blog post in praise of the banana!) Slice them on porridge, add them to smoothies or bake them.
3) Eggs – packed full of protein, vitamins and minerals; versatile for any meal whether breakfast, lunch or tea, and definite fast food done properly. Poached eggs are our absolute faves.
4) Pineapple – fresh or tinned we’re not precious. Chuck it in a smoothie, have it as a snack or dessert. Delicious and simple.
5) Cheese – ok ok limit it to a 30g portion but don’t forget that it is full of protein, calcium, vitamin A and B12.
6) Custard – you can make a lower fat version with skimmed milk and sweetener but totally worth it. A mood boost without the fat and sugar.
7) Grapefruit –we have two top tips with grapefruit: 1) You will feel healthier by merely putting one in your shopping basket and 2) get one of those special grapefruit spoons – you need one in your life.
There you have it, our top 7 ways to get more yellow onto your plate! #eathappy
