The Food Lover's Challenge: Colorful Meals

This week, the food lovers (Kate and Carrie) challenged themselves to eat seven of the most colorful meals they could think up. They were to take a photograph of their most colorful meal each day and compile them into a series of e-mails to another coworker. Said coworker (Julia) would choose the winner. And then Carrie would blog about it. Here's how it went down.

Kate ate:

Carrie ate:

And the leprechaun with the pot of gold (get it? rainbow reference) goes to yours truly.


After seeing my photos, Kate said "I still think I should win. But I will admit that if I had to choose between eating only my meals for the rest of my life or yours, I would definitely want your meals." She does get major props for the rainbow she created, using blue cheese to make the roygbiv complete. And I realize that my phone takes better pictures than hers. But I put a lot of thought into some of these meals and I think I deserve the gold!

This week, Kate has challenged us to write down everything we consume that is not water or air. I will say that was motivation enough not to eat an extra two cookies after lunch yesterday. Talk about holding yourself accountable. I'm not sure I'm going to like this but I will try.

If anyone wants to join the fun, send me an e-mail! And, by fun, I mean serious ultra majorly competitive food challenge.


  1. Those meals all look so good too! I love this challenge, keep it up!

  2. Love this challenge idea- wish I could participate!
