Offering 60 percent of your recommended fiber for the day, this antioxidant-rich rainbow salad aids in digestion and may even diminish belly fat. Chopped tomatoes, peppers, and radishes are tossed in a spicy lime dressing then neatly tucked into a halved avocado for a pretty presentation. With a mix of crunchy, creamy, cooling, and spicy ingredients, eating the rainbow has never tasted so good.
