Is Green A Rainbow Color?

So the green thing. I woke up wondering if I ate only green foods could I be healthy and lose the fat quicker? I also wondered why it was so important to the government who makes food policies for the populace, that we eat the colors of food that appear in the rainbow.

It’s like a prejudicial thing if you don’t. You’re labeled a food racist or something like that. Somebody’s trying to get the white potato off the list of vegetables. Call it a weed or something, not worthy to be on your plate.

Sounds like how the world views white people. We are the minority color of the world. Though we’re not considered a color by the people of color. They set that up all neat and tidy. We don’t exist on their color scale. That’s what it feels like to be a minority.

The government wants to keep everybody working who is working. So of course they recommend that you purchase all the products everybody sells.

That’s why they keep telling everybody to eat animals, because of all the people put out of work if you don’t, even though they know that eating the animal is killing us.

There’s no such thing as green animal meat, unless it’s gangrenous or moldy.

Oddly, when I envision a rainbow I don’t think the color green.

But yes to the question, is green a rainbow color. Green is one of the seven visible colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

In fact, all plants are green. The fruit, vegetable, nut, seed, grain, legume all originated from a green seedling/plant, even though the end product of what we pick from the plant may reflect the colors of a rainbow or colors not in the rainbow. Although potatoes are white inside; they’re brown outside. Brown is not a visible color of the rainbow. Neither is black and neither is white. Nuts are brown, the insides of some fruits are white (apples) and some veggies are white throughout (asparagus), but I am not aware of black unless it’s a blue-black or purple-black.

Fungi (mushrooms) are not green, but still classified as plants. They derive their nutrients from the green plants around them.

So maybe the rainbow analogy or comparison isn’t a good one. Sure it’s useful in recommending all colors, but not all colors of the natural foods we eat appear in the rainbow. We don’t want to leave something nutritious out because it doesn’t fit our way of expressing to others the value in eating a multitude of colors and shades.
