Healthy Valentine’s Day *Kid Friendly* Menu Plan

Hi Guys!

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.

Healthy valentines 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?

Graham Cracker “Gingerbread” Houses {Blogmas Day 15}

Hi Guys!

Today i’m sharing a fun take on gingerbread houses, Graham Cracker houses…

20181214_100943

This is an easy project, here’s what you will need…

  • Graham Crackers
  • Vanilla Frosting
  • Assorted candies & sprinkles

20181214_101002

I place some frosting on the bottom of a paper plate. Then i start adding the graham crackers and frost each side of them as i add them to the house.

20181214_101005

I don’t worry about it looking nice and neat, because you need the frosting all over the house for the candies and sprinkles to stick to it.

And that’s it, once you have assembled the house, have the kids decorate it however they want to.

Then enjoy eating the masterpieces!

Hi Guys!

Only 10 more days until Thanksgiving, can you believe it?! Are you prepared yet?! I was able to get a little bit of my Thanksgiving grocery shopping done over the weekend, but I still have more to buy.

Pretty much every year I forget at least one thing at the store, and so I thought in order to help me with all my planning and shopping I would type it all up. And today i’m going to share what I have created with you all.

Is there anything more divine smelling then that of a roast cooking?

Even though my diet is vegetarian/vegan, the rest of my family still eats meat.
