It’s Valentine’s Day this weekend and since we’re in lockdown I thought I would share some fun, delicious and healthy meal ideas to have with your loved ones.
Traditionally Valentine’s Day is ALL about the chocolate (which I love), but I also enjoy putting healthy twists on our favourite dishes and to show how good food CAN be delicious as well as nutritious!
This blog focuses on adults but keep an eye out for my Children’s Valentine’s Day blog coming on Friday!
Valentine’s Day Breakfast ideas
Valentine’s Day breakfast is probably not quite so romantic pre-kids, but definitely can still be filled with LOTS of love around the table.
Eggs – there are some great egg shaping tools to turn your poached eggs into hearts or one like this sun and cloud, to make how you have your eggs in the morning a little bit special.
Breakfast bowls – these are a favourite of mine, and very quick and easy to whip up. Some Greek yoghurt or even an Overnight Oats Recipe made beautiful simply by adding some colourful fruits, nuts, seeds or berries shaped into a heart to make it extra special.
But to top it all off – PANCAKES – definitely the ideal Valentine’s Day breakfast or brunch. YOu can easily use moulds to make them heard shape of simply finish them with a drizzle of chocolate sauce or some colourful berries!
