Foods By Color : Rainbow Recipe Index

Why Organize Recipes & Foods By Color

Aiming to eat the rainbow is a nice way to keep mealtimes colorful, full of variety, nutritious, and fun!

I like to categorize recipes into colors based on the main ingredient or overall color of a dish because first of all, it’s fun! And also, it encourages “eating the rainbow.” Food, especially fruits and vegetables, come in a variety of colors, and feels like nature’s way of adding a spectrum of important nutrients into our diet.

Below is an index of Rainbow Delicious recipes organized into colors. Some recipes obviously include multiple colors so I categorized it the best I could based on the overall look of the dish or a stand out ingredient.
