Welcome to Sunday Funday.  I am hosting today and asked the others to join me in sharing colorful recipes in honor of Eat a Rainbow day.  Let's see what they brought to the table.......

Eating a rainbow is a delicious and beautiful way to get important nutrients and antioxidants into your diet.  It is true that we eat with the eyes first and when food looks appetizing it instantly gets your attention.

I try to serve my family rainbows as often as possible.  It is  great way to serve vegetables like this grilled ratatouille, or this salad of Mixed Greens with Golden Beets.  

You can also make a whole dinner into a rainbow as I did with this Grilled Steak with Mango Chimichurri served with Sweet Potato Fries, this Noodle Stir Fry with Chicken, Grilled Italian Sausages with Peppers and Onions or this Gingered Shrimp and Veggie Bowl.

Rainbows are not limited to dinner though.  How about a colorful breakfast of  Mixed Berry Crepes or Rainbow Sprinkles Pancakes?  

Let's not forget Rainbows for Dessert.  This Celebration of Spring Cake is perfect for this time of year.
