It’s always so amazing to see the gorgeous colors that come from natural dyes.

Each day of the week leading up to Easter, my kids get to choose what color egg to eat for breakfast. It’s become a super-fun family tradition!

I must say, I’m happy knowing that no artificial dyes are going into their growing bodies as they enjoy this fun.

Look at these bright colors we have achieved, totally naturally :

  1. The red cabbage is amazing! I also really like the blueberrry. Great job. That must have been a fun family activity.

    • I know, Natalie… didn’t it turn out gorgeously. We were expecting it to be in the red family and it was such a great surprise to see it go blue :)
      It is a fun family tradition.
