#WhatsyourColour – Hello, Yellow!



Yellow is such a fun colour! Not only symbolising joy and energy, it is also the most visible colour of the spectrum and the first colour our eyes process and therefore the colour of warning signs and life jackets.

A lot is always being said about eating your greens, but yellow fruits and vegetables do not have to stand back for their cool cousins. Packed with carotenoids and bioflavonoids, they are a great source of antioxidants and a offers an abundance of vitamin C. Eating yellow fruit and vegetables every day will aid in the health of your heart, vision, digestion and immune system. According to which represent a class of water soluble plant pigments that function as antioxidants. Along with antioxidants, sunny-colored foods also have an abundance of vitamin C. Studies suggest that these bountiful nutrients will help your heart, vision, digestion and immune system. Skin, bones and teeth also benefits from yellow foods. (Read more)

Yellow comes in a wide variety of shades, from light lemon to delightful daffodil to moody mustard. For today’s recipe, we picked a fiery yellow butternut and turned it into a creamy tart. It is delicious on its own with a glass of our 2016 Culinaria Chenin Blanc (or even the 2017 Classic Chardonnay) and is a lovely sweet veggie to serve with roast chicken!
