adventure #3 - rainbow pasta


balance is having a bit of everything, and for a for a nice balance of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants - rainbow eating is the answer! apparently eating one fruit or vegie from each of the five colour groups (red, orange, yellow, green, purple/blue) is a simple way to ensure you get a good variety of nutrients in your diet.

so on thurs, while i took a break from staring at several confusingly similar oral pathology histo slides, i had a bit of a cooking adventure ...and i cooked up some rainbow pasta ^^...didn't have proper pasta sauce at home so i just made-do with tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, garlic, dried basil and a hint of chilli flakes :P then i cooked some corn, peas and carrots to go with the wholemeal fusilli pasta...i was just missing some beetroot or red cabbage for the purple/blue category...which probably would've turned my entire bowl of pasta a rather odd colour...

anyhoos, i ended up eating a very satisfying healthy lunch :)

That looks really yummy! =)
I've never tried wholemeal pasta though. Can you get it from the supermarket?
