Have you ever heard the expression “eating with your eyes”? This article is all about making your food COLORFUL. Just because you're on a diet, doesn't mean that your food shouldn't look nice! So here's a list of low carb foods that – when put together in a suitable combination – can really make your plate pop with color!

You'll probably not be surprised to see that the list for blue low carb food is pretty short, and the list for green low carb food is much longer! But there are plenty of other colors to keep you interested!

I've included fruit, vegetables, and protein – but if you have more suggestions – let me know! Note: Some of these items (like beets and butternut squash) should only be eaten in moderation. Please refer to nutrition data panels or articles like Low Carb Vegetables and Low Carb Fruit for specifics on carbohydrate count.
