Taste a rainbow
I like to live by the saying… TASTE A RAINBOW (and no I don’t mean skittles) LOL. Give me all the veggies!! Our bodies benefit from variety, eating a diversity of colorful foods can be an easy way to get a complete range of the vitamins and minerals your body needs to thrive! I often refer this mindset when referring to little people, but it goes for adults too!
They say we eat with our eyes and what better flavor than rainbow! Is rainbow a flavor? It’s a known fact that when our taste buds come in contact with food, they send signals to our brain to interpret flavor. Because we look at our food before eating, our eyes send signals to our brain long before our taste buds even get the chance!
This rainbow veggie sandwich will have your entire body doing a happy dance! Get ittttttt.

What bread is best on a rainbow veggie sandwich
When I began my gluten free lifestyle I thought I’d never eat bread again. I tried dozens of gluten free breads and none of them were much to write home about. Insert Canyon Bakehouse. OMG I have never been happier as a gluten free carboholic!
Not only does Canyon Bakehouse offer a wide selection of products, they have an array of flavor options when it comes to bread! If I had to choose a favorite it would defiantly be this heritage style whole grain. It is legit.
Just look at that texture and thickness! Did I mention it tastes just as good if not better than it looks. And unlike most gluten-free breads, you can enjoy it straight out of the package. In the past, the only way I could stomach gluten free bead was toasted, and even then it was barely enjoyable.
Stacks on stacks on stacks! This rainbow veggie sandwich stacked high with colorful vegetables will knock your socks off! Pair it with a side of your favorite gluten free potato chips and enjoy! Put it on this weeks menu rotation and let me know if you make it! ENJOY!

Pickled Carrots and Red Onions
The most delicious garnish to jazz up any meal!
- 1 medium purple onion sliced thin
- 2 medium carrots julienned or spiralized
- 2 cups red wine vinegar
- 1 cup water
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp salt
In a small saucepan heat the vinegar, water, sugar and salt until boiling. Turn the heat off and add carrots and onions. Cover with a lid and allow to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.
Place all ingredients in a mason jar or glass dish, cover and refrigerate for at least one hour to overnight. The longer they set the more flavor.
To serve, drain vegetables and set in a small dish as a garnish.
