I'm sorry, man.
I love you...
...but it's not working out.
A while back my amazing naturopath suggested that I should try and 'eat the rainbow' in fruits and vegetables every day.
Of course, I had to remember the colors by muttering 'Roy G. Biv' to myself'.
It's the only way I've ever remembered the correct sequence.
Repeating it over and over to yourself can cause startled glances from other shoppers in the produce department.
But regardless of the fact that I'm pretty sure the produce people roll their eyes when I walk in...
I've been really, really trying hard to take this advice...
I think Roy needs a little re-do because I'm having a lot of trouble consistently eating the 'iv' part of his name.
Sure Red is easy.
Orange is easy.
Yellow is easy.
Green is kinda/sorta easy, even though I honestly cannot gag down kale in any shape or form.
The blue is limited but at least there are always blueberries in fresh or frozen form.
Then I get lost.
Is a blackberry technically indigo or blue? And is black like indigo or is it...
And what the heck fruit or vegetable is violet?
Blueberries are kind of violet colored but then I don't have a blue.
Some grapes look kinda/sorta violet but are they really red?
I think to take some of the stress off, I'm going to start calling the Rainbow by it's first name, middle initial and last initial.
Good old 'Roy G. B.'.
Even though it's kinda/sorta cheating, I don't think the rainbow will mind.
