In honor of Pride— a month that celebrates freedom of being one's true self, the healing power of love and honoring those who've fought for LGBTQIA+ visibility and rights — we advise you to honor your body with this technicolor recipe. Consider this the on-theme fuel before heading out to the Pride March (on Sunday if you're in NYC!), or serving to friends + family all summer long.

We love this recipe because ~Eating the Rainbow~ is both a visual feast and a pillar of nutrition, as the more colors are in your food (naturally!), the more phytonutrients are bioavailable. Reds mean lycopene, quercetin, anthocyadins; blue and purple include flavanoids, resveratrol and phenolics; yellows and orange note beta-carotene, lutein, beta cryptoxanthin; and white means glucosinolates.

These vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc. are bursts of color on your plate that you need. Celebrate yourself, diversity, summer's bounty— with this goodness:
