We’re told that we should try to eat various coloured foods throughout the day. That’s because different hues signal that different nutrients and antioxidants are being offered. And with February being Heart Month and also the time when Valentine’s Day falls on the calendar, there is no better time to make sure your diet is splashed in red.

From morning to night, these red-themed recipes can help keep your heart beating strong and show that love is in the air.
