Our first color in “The Colors of the Market” series is red! Red foods are loaded with nutrients, ranging from high levels of Vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber and even folate, an essential vitamin for pregnancy. The many options made it hard to narrow down which foods to use for the project but I finally decided on a mix that both you and your littles can enjoy in a variety of ways be it raw, cooked or dried. Throughout the month of February, I’ll share tidbits on each of these red foods, including recommendations on when to introduce to little ones, recipes, how to store properly, and more. I will start today with a recipe that I created in an effort not to waste any of the food after the photo shoot. This combines several of our red foods. It is a quick and beautiful salad that you can make for lunch or a light dinner. Most importantly, it is husband and toddler approved. I hope you enjoy!
