Daily Challenge Monday Aug. 06, 2012
Put 1 purple food on your grocery list, such as grapes, eggplant, blackberries, or plums.
How to do it
When you put together your next shopping list, include the power of purple by writing down one type of purple produce. Some tasty choices include grapes, eggplant, blackberries, blueberries, plums, figs, and prunes.
Why it matters
Pile on the purple! Purple produce gets its color from anthocyanin, an antioxidant that is believed to offer many health benefits. It may help prevent heart disease, cancer, and stroke. And fruits and veggies - whether they are purple or not - always offer your body necessary nutrients and fiber.
The first draft for the 1984 movie "Purple Rain" was titled "Dreams." Prince requested many changes, including a new title that incorporated the word "purple."
I allllways have several purple foods on my grocery list ~ grapes, purple cauliflower, plums, cabbage ;)
Grapes and plums! NOM!!
I buy blueberries & blackberries all the time and make jam with them....also use them in my smoothies......put them in my yogurt...
I bought grapes AND figs when I went grocery shopping last week. I'll make sure to get more colorful fruit and veggies this week too!
I eat alot of fruit especially blackberries I like to blend them into my juice plus shake in the AM.

Didn't put it on the grocery list---I went out and picked an eggplant from the garden and had it for dinner. Used it in place of spagetti, with sauce and some cheese. Pretty good.
