Go Greenery! Foods that Match Pantone's Colour of 2017

The shade Greenery, declared the Pantone Colour of 2017, symbolises balance, harmony and is known to relieve stress. Sample these because it’s never too late to go green…

Avocado Toast

The fruit in itself is probably the coolest health superfood, but when smeared on toast there’s no question but to take a picture of this breakfast/snack and hashtag #avocadotoast on Instagram. The benefits of avocado are multiple—from lowering cholesterol to providing good fibres, avocado is high in potassium, and helps absorb fat-soluble nutrients from other plant-based foods as well as ups their nutrition value.

Matcha macarons Match Pantone's Colour of 2017
Sweet treats: Matcha Macarons

If you’ve already jumped onto the matcha-loving train, it’s time you try this French/Italian delight (a dessert which became popular in the 16th century by Catherine De Medici’s chefs that she brought to the French court of House of Valois from Italy) with a unique Japanese twist. Now imagine the puffy matcha sandwiches with either a thin layer of chocolate ganache in the middle or buttercream.

Pistachio ice-cream Match Pantone's Colour of 2017

In case you, like the rest of the world, love pistachios but find shelling them a tad cumbersome—opt for this Middle Eastern delight. Or better still, make it at home. You could also make a pistachio campote to add a neutral nutty flavour to desserts. (Check out Bombay Canteen’s Gulab Nut)

Kiwi-Lime Sorbet Match Pantone's Colour of 2017
Kiwi packs a nutritional punch

This light, appetising dessert has a simple recipe: peel, blend in a food processor with honey and lime, pour in a container, freeze for two hours and eat away!

Spinach-Kale juice Match Pantone's Colour of 2017
You could spike up the health quotient by tossing florets of broccoli

Spinach-Kale juice

A green juice cleanse is a must every now and then—just take a cup of spinach, ½ cup of kale and chopped green apples and blitz away.
