Food and Color

Just as we are affected by the colors we wear or surround ourselves with, so too are we affected by the energy of the food we eat.

Foods color vibration not only appears to relate to various parts of the body but to the chakras as well.

In other words, when we ingest the appropriate color vibrations of food, it serves to maintain health, to activate and heal, and to balance the chakras.

Eating - A Colorful and Sensuous Experience

The physical colour of food is a natural guide to the nutrients that it contains.
