According to the authors, “Chaos in the world around us can make us feel stressed, weakening our inner emotional and spiritual strengths. A book that empowers readers to support their feelings through the colors of foods is fascinating as it is valuable.”

The new book, “The Secret Powers of Colorful Foods: Enhancing trust, sensuality, self-confidence, love, forgiveness, intuition and spirituality” (published by Balboa Press) by authors Patricia Dennis and Charlotte Lyons reveal the color connection between foods and moods. It is a guide to enhancing psychological and spiritual well-being with colorful fruits and vegetables. It is based upon the ancient East Indian Chakra System - the belief that the body has internal energy centers along the spine that emit a different color for each emotion. Matching food colors to the color of emotions can help energize them. Selecting and consuming foods whose colors match chakra colors can be good for emotional health.
Part One explains the emotion-color connection and invites the reader to select a color. Part Two comprises seven different color chapters: red, orange, yellow, green aquamarine, purple and violet. Each chapter opens with the emotional and spiritual dynamics of a color, continues with food fun trivia and color coordinated vegetarian recipes and ends with affirmations, exercises and meditations. Part Three, “Playing With Rainbow Foods,” utilizes all fruit and vegetable colors. It includes throwing a Rainbow Foods Party with Rainbow Shooters and a Rainbow Card Game so that everything gleaned from the book is applied in an interactive way.
Learning this new way to look at colorful foods and seeing them as emotionally empowering tools can make readers more mindful and inspired to enjoy fruits and vegetables. According to the authors, “Chaos in the world around us can make us feel stressed, weakening our inner emotional and spiritual strengths. A book that empowers readers to support their feelings through the colors of foods is fascinating as it is valuable.”
Kirkus Reviews, a trusted voice in book discovery for almost 80 years, describes “The Secret Powers of Colorful Foods” as “a new, colorful angle on eating food from the earth.”
