My acupuncturist recently reminded me, EAT YOUR RAINBOW!!!!  So I figured I’d make it easy on myself and create a one stop dish to get all of my colors in (with blueberries for dessert to sneak in that one last color!)  I could eat this every day, not only is it beautiful to look at but so satisfying, delicious and simple to make. I reccommend topping with a fried egg or two if you’re into that kind of thing!  I also recommend making extra because having leftovers is always a bonus, and this holds up well to being reheated.  Hope you love!! xx- Sarah

    This looks delicious! I try to eat the rainbow at every meal. I’ve done this with my twin girls from the beginning and I’m so glad I did! They’re 5-year-olds who enjoy fruits and veggies of every color!
