Anita and Drew are trying to turn themselves yellow by eating 8 carrots a day (each). They are on Day 14 of their self induced carotenosis journey. Pumpkins and pawpaw fruit would also work because they too are high in β-carotene. β-carotene is the precursor which our bodies use to produce Vitamin-A.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Thanks for the post (and now I’ll remember to take nice pictures of myself, rather than just-out-of-the-shower and exhausted photos:)! I hope others try the world of self-experimentation, even if to try some small things like what we’re doing. Enjoy!
Anita – You inspire us. I’m sure there were be some carrot and pawpaw gobbling due to your influence. Keep it up. We can’t wait to see your lovely jaundice complexion.
In Medical Detectives by Berton Roche (2 volumes), there is a story about someone who turned himself orange. The diagnosis was this plus tomatoes which are red and have a similar effect.
Medical Detectives is one of the non-programming hacker’s debugging mastercourse canon books.
Also note there is agyeria if you have too much collodial silver where you can turn yourself blue.
