Why? Blue food is rare in nature. Aside from blueberries and blue-purple potatoes, blue foods don’t exist in any significant quantity. There are no blue leafy vegetables or blue meats that I know of.
Back in the day, when man was out foraging for food, it became apparent – as people gasped for air, dropping dead on the spot 🙂 – that blue, purple or black were ‘colors of warning’ of potentially deadly food. Therefore, we don’t have an automatic appetite response to blue food. We may even have a built-in primal avoidance.
So – paint your safe corner or room a cool color so that you can chill!
