This week I had the honor to design the logo for the International Women's Day event of The Professional Women's Association of Rome. Festa della donna Rainbox Day will feature award-winning chef Gaetano Costa. He will host the PWA members and guests at the Ritz Hotel in Rome for a Rainbow lunch based on healthy, colorful vegetables and fruits. He will also give a lecture on this fashionable and life-saving diet invented by Chris Woollams.
The Rainbow Diet is rich in colourful fruits and vegetables; nuts, seeds and extra virgin olive oil. Fish is eaten two or three times a week but red meat and cows' dairy rarely if ever. Refined carbs and added glucose are not part of this diet. However, a modest regular red wine consumption helps. Research is quite clear - people who adhere most closely to the diet are chronic illness-free and live longer!
The Mediterranean Diet is a diet of colour and vibrancy. It is primarily...
Low sugar/refined sugar consumption, moderate whole carb consumption
High fat, especially good fat (olive oil, nuts and seeds) consumption
High consumption of a rainbow of colourful vegetables
Moderate wine consumption
Moderate consumption of meat, but reasonable consumption of chicken and game; good levels of fish consumption
Low to nil consumption of red meat and cows' dairy
Fresh food preparation
High vitamin D levels - outdoor and sunshine lifestyle
