Five Colors

Washoku guidelines encourage us to prepare every meal using 5 colors (RED, YELLOW, GREEN, BLACK & WHITE). This insures nutritional balance and makes food more inviting, too.

This TSUDOI project asks you to create a meal that includes 5 colors. It could be as simple as a salad, sandwich or noodles… or as elaborate as a multi-course meal including a featured dish, several side dishes and dessert.

Please join the Facebook group to post one (or several) photos of what you made in your kitchen, with a brief description.
