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

There's no better way to appreciate the colour than by chowing down a visually comforting yet appetising platter in the shade of nature’s neutral!


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.
