Rainbow Recipes

Yesterday I had my ZOOM cooking class on Eat a Rainbow. Below are the three recipes with photos. These are cooking-by-the-strings-of-your apron, because I give you lots of choices, mostly alkalizing fruits & veggies. If these are side dishes, and the main dishes feature meat, dairy, and grains or beans, eat twice as many veggies as these items, because they are acidic.

Rainbow Fruit Salad Bowl

 Ingredients (Organic if possible)

 ½ cup Grapes (red or green)

½ Mango or Papaya

1 Kiwi (yellow or green)

½ cup Blueberries of Blackberries

½ Strawberries or Raspberries

Optional toppings: non-dairy yogurt, unsweetened applesauce, or

unsweetened shredded coconut


  1. Wash each fruit well. Strain. Remove skin of mango or papaya and kiwi and cut into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Place cut fruit into a serving bowl. Divide equally into 3 or 4 small bowls. Add topping.Note: You can put the toppings in small bowls with serving spoons, so people can choose their topping. Or make the whole dish a buffet and let people also choose their fruits.
