Hang onto your plates as Deanna tips “diet” on it’s head, delightfully sharing how color can change our lives, influence us, affect our feelings and alter our behavior. Her wisdom of “We need to expand the definition of nutrient to mean not just something in the diet that we’re eating, but it’s in the diet of what we’re feeling, it’s in the diet of what we’re thinking and reflecting,” is spot on in how we treat ourselves to have energy to pursue our passions. It’s time for all of us to “Think in color, eat in color, live in color!”
