A Red Inspired Menu

Looking for healthy and delicious Valentine's Day recipes? Get inspired by this beautifully red menu.

The colour red is synonymous with Valentine’s Day. But instead of falling back on the predictable bouquet of roses or heart-shaped box of chocolates, why not fill your loved ones’ bellies with delicious and nutritious red-themed dishes that will indeed tug at their heart strings.

A day of eating red is not only fetching to the eye. Many of Mother Nature’s rosy foods are considered nutritional superstars. For instance, take raspberries, which are rich in vitamin C and dietary fibre. Fitting for the day, research suggests higher intakes of fibre can offer protection from heart disease.

Dig deep for beets and you’ll get a healthy dose of folate, a B vitamin associated with a lower risk for hypertension.

Up-and-coming red quinoa is supercharged with protein, fibre, phosphorus, and magnesium. A raft of studies has demonstrated that magnesium is an ally in the battle against diabetes.
