continuing the series of eat in color (finding ways to enjoy naturally colorful foods within our day), we focus on red foods for this post. our task is to find a way to have a red food at every meal throughout the day, eventually leading up to eating a rainbow of foods all in one day. and with the great recipes below, I won’t have a problem having a red food at every meal. 😉 are you taking this eat-in-color challenge with me? let me know your favorite red foods. (and guess what, all of these meals and recipes are perfect for #MeatlessMonday!)
