Who doesn’t love eating fun-colored food? While many processed foods are dyed with artificial coloring and should usually be avoided, there are many natural alternatives that are just as vibrant! Not only are plant-based blue foods fun to eat and pretty to look at, but they are also filled with nutrients! These recipes get their gorgeous color from blue Spirulina, blue matcha, and blueberries, which contain the phytochemical anthocyanin. Studies have shown that eating foods high in this phytochemical may help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and cancer. From smoothie bowls, to cheesecake and pop tarts, these blue food recipes will not disappoint! Which recipe are you most excited to try?
