This month is Make May Purple in Aid of the Stroke Association and seeming everyone is loving only eating coloured foods for 24 hours I have decided to only eat purple food for the next 24 hours. You can watch my vlog on the YouTube, go check it out and smash that subscribe button. #MakeMayPurple
I personally love watching these videos, they can be quite funny trying to find these foods. I've had a quick look online at what I could get, however because of lockdown we can't just pop to the shop and a lot of products I could get online are either out of stock or not delivering.
So I've just come back from shopping and due to it being quiet I was able to go to Tesco and Aldi's and honestly, I feel like I am going to be hungry. There just wasn't much at all. I wanted to get food that was already purple but I haven't been able to find any main meal foods so I think I will have to cheat and maybe dye some rice at some point.
So for breakfast I managed to grab an Innocent Smoothie, which at first I couldn't work out was pink or purple but after seeing it by the rest of the purple food I'm saying it's purple. With my smoothie I had black grapes, which I personally think are purple, with blueberry yoghurt. The yoghurt wasn't as purple as I thought it would be seeming when I've had this yoghurt before it's been a deep purple colour.
So my next snack was just the fruit pastilles, great! I definitely normally eat more food than this in a day.
This is now time to cheat. So I actually had to end up dying rice purple, it did sort of work the rice ended up being a lilac colour. I thought it was quite pretty. I actually didn't think about getting purple food colouring so I had to make a purple out of food colouring I already had. I mixed my rice with some red cabbage and beetroot. This was my main meal of the day so I tried to wait as long as I could to have it as I knew there wasn't much left to have.
Overall this challenge was fun and very interesting. The colour purple was very, very hard to find, even online. I would love to try again outside of lockdown. I will also be trying other colours too so keep watching and head to our Youtube Channel and subscribe for more videos coming soon.
