Did you know that food and creativity go hand-in-hand?

Does your writing or artwork feel a little blah? Do you feel uninspired at times?

There is an easy solution– put more color into your diet! Eating a magical rainbow of colors and drinking lots of crystal clear water not only brightens your day and boosts your energy, but it also jump starts your creative flow! By adding colorful magic to your diet, you add colorful magic to your life! We are what we eat, after all.

This is what I do to make sure that I eat my daily requirement of magic:

1.) Eat every color in the rainbow at least once a day.

Added challenge: Try to use every color of the rainbow in one dish.


2.) Add color to your water while you’re writing, drawing or working.

Berries, citrus fruits, cucumbers and herbs are both colorful and flavorful.

3.) Decorate your living space by displaying your colorful fruits and veggies.

Not only will the rainbow of colors be visually stimulating, but you will be amazed at how they they will also inspire you.

4.) Ask: What colorful combinations does your body need to sparkle with creativity? 

Simply close your eyes and think about what colors your body craves. Eating the colors that you need to feel imaginative and magical will IMMEDIATELY start your creative flow.   

5.) Make magical creations with your colorful fruits and veggies!

Cooking is a great creative exercise (with the added benefit of delicious rewards in the end.) But if you’re like me, (a terrible cook who finds cooking a tedious chore) then simplify. Just arranging basic food items on plates and then enjoying them outdoors is a simple way to make magic and feel magical. 


Let yourself play and have fun by trying this whimsical way of eating at least once! I think you’ll be surprised at how much BRIGHTER, LIGHTER and MAGICAL you’ll feel!

Create something brilliant today with your inner magic!


P.S.- Hehe, A sneaky kitty wanted her daily requirement of magic too!

    This is such a simple concept, but like your other posts, I am amazed. You really have a way of making me rethink things. (You also make me want to go sit in a forest and eat some fruit!)

    This world needs more shining stars like you Emmy Blue!!

      Thank you Sarah! Your complement truly made my morning more magical!

      And yes, it takes hundreds of billions of stars and celestial objects to make the evening sky magical! So we all need to shine to make our own world brighter! Xx

    Your cat is cute, just like this blog. Of course “kitty cat” has her daily requirement of magic if she lives with you. Your life must be great. What is in your bowl of spaghetti? -kc

      Thank you KC! This is a really simple dish that you can throw together in less than 30 minutes! It is just soba noodles with whatever vegetables we have on hand (pictured: carrots, bell peppers, green onion, broccoli, shredded beets). The sauce I make is just a simple mixture of tahini, garlic, ginger, dates (for sweetness), tamari and red pepper flakes. Then we garnish with lime and cilantro. If we don’t have an ingredient, we simply omit! And here’s a fun secret: If you shred beets and leave it on the noodles for a bit, the noodles turn a lovely shade of deep purple!! Xx

  3. What a neat idea! Now, if someone would just cut and arrange it all for me, I’d eat it.

      Hehe…I know, I do not enjoy cooking at all, but I LOVE eating like this. The only solution I have found is to chop everything up when I have time and then just store it until it’s time to throw a meal together. (And sometimes, I’m so busy, that I literally throw it together, hee hee).
