Orange...my favorite food group!
I have discovered that I love just about any food that is orange (or some variation of the color). My sister asked me this past weekend why my palms are orange. I really did not notice it because it used to be so bad. I looked down at my hands and realized that they do indeed still have a little tint to them. Now, I was not like a cartoon character or anything like that, but I did have quite the orange tint due to the pumpkin consumption that I had gone a little too far with before. So, when I noticed they were still a little orangish I started to think about why. Well, I eat a lot of orange foods. This summer, I have been on a really fresh and raw kick. I have not posted so much this summer due to the fact that I have been eating a lot of salads and fruit. Mostly with carrots and cantaloupe. Does that answer the question of why I still have the tint??? According to my research...this is easy to fix. Good to know, but really why would you care when you can enjoy such wonderful fresh orange produce this summer!!! Anyway, since I don't care about the color and I love the look of this bread, I will share with you a slice of carrot bread made with carrot juice. The illustrator has been making smoothies for breakfast for a while now and carrot juice is one of his favorite juices to use in the berry smoothies. We needed to use it up before the sell by date and here is a recipe I found to do just that. The only things I changed were the addition of an glaze (powdered sugar and dairy free milk) and no walnuts. This one did not stick around for long...it was devoured within minutes!

    That's OK, we like you orange. Luckily we do not discriminate based on skin color. And you're right, who can resist some juicy cantelope? My favorite orange food is acorn squash, YUM!

    I love acorn squash too! I admit that I am looking forward to some fall/winter squash! Oh, and peeree3 I am so glad that you don't discriminate based on color...that would be so bad for me!
