I know how hard it is to come up with a healthy meal for my family, especially holiday meals. That’s why i’ve decided to write up a healthy menu plan for this Valentine’s Day.
Before, for Valentine’s Day, we would most likely have donuts for breakfast. Don’t get me wrong i absolutely love a good donut here and there, but they aren’t healthy and they are packed full of sugar, and they don’t fill you up.
Instead, for a healthy breakfast option, how about Banana Oatmeal Pancakes!
You could even make them in a heart shaped mold, to make them more festive. What’s great about these pancakes is they are; sugar-free, oil- free, gluten-free, and dairy-free.
For lunch, the Banana Dog Bites are super yummy!
We have been making these for years, and all my kids love them. They are also super simple to make (only 3 ingredients)!
**If you are not a fan of peanut butter and bananas, you could do a tortilla roll up instead, with deli meat, cheese, and your favorite condiment (i love mustard on mine).**
Where we live Valentine’s Day is always chilly, so warming up with a hot bowl of soup always sounds like a good idea. This Cheeseburger Soup is a big hit with all of my children.
Packed with veggies, even a secret one that was blended up that my kids still don’t know about (Shhh!), it’s creamy, delicious, and can be made in a pressure cooker!!
Of course it’s Valentine’s Day we are talking about ,so i can’t forget about dessert. Chocolate Covered Strawberries will always be a classic Valentine’s Day dessert for me.
You can make them healthier by using a dark chocolate, and skipping out on the sprinkles.
I hope you have enjoyed this healthy sample menu for Valentine’s Day. What do you normally eat on Valentine’s Day?
