June is officially LGBT Pride Month, and what better way to celebrate than by enjoying some rainbow-inspired foods? This year, get out there and show your support by not only attending one of the fabulous Pride parades around the world, but by eating some multi-coloured cuisine. And thanks to the rainbow food trend that has taken off in 2016, eating rainbow foods has never been easier.
In light of the recent tragedy in Orlando, the world needs to show their support for the LGBTQ community now more than ever. Whether you're eating food that looks like a rainbow or attending the 2016 Pride Parade in your city, be sure to take a moment to reflect upon the unspeakable events of June 12th. My heartfelt condolences go out to all those who did not survive and their families.
Check out 12 rainbow-fied foods in honour of LGBT Pride Month.
12 Rainbow Bread
Looking light as can be, this rainbow bread cake is magnificent. Those pastel colours are inviting AF, all I want to do is slather this in Nutella and peanut butter.
11 Rainbow Fruit Medley
This healthy rainbow-ified spread of fresh summer fruit would be super relaxing after a long, hot summer day. Including grapes, kiwi, melon, strawberries, orange, and pineapple, this rainbow fruit medley will ensure you get all your essential vitamins and nutrients – and have fun doing it!
10 Rainbow Popsicles
Utter perfection. Made with a blend of all the sweetest fruit juices, these multi-coloured popsicles are all I want to eat this summer.
9 Rainbow Grilled Cheese
Yes, this really exists. I'm not sure it should exist, but here it is. Regardless of your take on the rainbow grilled cheese, the most important thing is that the cheese is gooey, and this grilled cheese looks as ooey and gooey as it gets.
8 Rainbow Bagel
This is one rainbow food trend I can get behind. Beige bagels are so last season. If you're not eating rainbow bagels (preferably stuffed with cookie dough, though cream cheese will do), then you're doing it wrong.
7 Rainbow Donuts
A stack of glazed rainbow donuts? Positively magical! I assume they just taste like a typical glazed donut, but I really don't care I still want them.
6 Rainbow-iced Cake
This incredible rosette icing design is made infinitely better by the rainbow-coloured formation. I just hope it looks as good inside...
5 Rainbow Layer Cake
Rainbow cake is really where the rainbow food trend took off so it's ok that cakes are used twice on this list. After all, what is more breathtaking than a cake with perfectly symmetrical rainbow-coloured layers? I could stare at this all day.
4 Rainbow Spaghetti
I'm not sure that I would eat this, but I bet a kid would love it! Spaghetti is definitely way more fun with the addition of red, pink, blue, green, and purple noodles.
3 Rainbow Sushi
These sushi rolls are so gorgeous I may cry. The fresh orange, green, and red veggies in the middle are certainly appetizing, but that rainbow rice really gets me. And realistically, it would not be very hard to re-create at home with just a bit of added food colouring...
2 Rainbow Macarons
This stunning rainbow macaron tower has got to be the best birthday cake in history. I really wouldn't know where to begin!
1 Rainbow Smoothie
Layered smoothies have become the latest trend on Instagram, and lucky for us, that means that smoothies now look like rainbows. If this doesn't inspire you to eat healthy, I don't know what will.
