    Hi Healthyeater - sorry it's been a while since I logged in. The red pieces are actually carrots! The photo is my own and shot with a digital camera in my kitchen. Thanks for the interest.

    I can't help but notice the red pieces in the photo of your chowder (red pepper possibly?), yet the ingredient list doesn't include anything red. Can you advise how you modified the recipe used for the photo. Thanks!
