Tonight is the Oscar’s and thoughts of black limos, gold statues, teary-eyed too-long speeches and slender starlets in swanky dresses swirl in my head. But the Oscar’s wouldn’t be complete without the red carpet. And red makes me think of all the delicious red foods I love to eat because they are both tasty and healthy: strawberries, tomatoes, cranberries, red bell peppers, raspberries, pomegranate, cherries, apples and more. Red foods are after all the first color step towards eating the rainbow. Why are red foods healthy? Buzzword: phytochemicals. So I’ve designed a complete menu from breakfast to dinner – with recipes starring red foods. My red carpet ready menu…
