Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. And when I think of Valentine’s Day I think of red and pink, hearts, lace, love, and TONS of candy and treats.
Don’t get me wrong: I love candy and cupcakes and other treats. I also like to have a balance of healthy options as well. So I have put together three meals for Valentine’s Day that are healthy and super easy to make.
First, I have eggs with heart shaped toast and a berry smoothie. I used a cookie cutter for the toast. Then I blend frozen berries with milk for the smoothie. I made hard boiled eggs because that’s my kids favorite way to have an egg.
Next is heart-shaped sandwiches with heart-shaped strawberries. Again I used my handy-dandy cookie cutter for the bread. You can make whatever sandwich you like. (My kids like PB & J!) For the strawberry, I cut off the leaves in a V-shape, so the berry resembles a heart.
Next, we have XO soup. I heated up a can of tomato soup, because it’s red. Then I put some sour cream in a ziploc bag and cut the corner and piped the XO onto the soup. This was easy and my kids loved it.
And I had to add a dessert. This might not be very healthy, but it is easy. Scoop strawberry ice cream into a bowl. To make it look more festive, I added heart-shaped strawberries and a chocolate heart. And enjoy! Easy peasy.
