Happy Valentines Day!
Well as much as I love love, I think Dolly Parton said it best: “My weaknesses have always been food and men – in that order” – so we’ll skip the men for the time being even if I always have quite a bit to say on the topic. You’d probably never guess that my foodie weaknesses are NOT Sweetheart candies or giant chocolate boxes (duh) – but c’mon, nutritionist or not, wouldn’t you rather someone imply “Be Mine” with one of these more original, adorable (not to mention healthy) heart shaped bites? I knew you would.
7. Heart-shaped banana pancakes (try it with a buckwheat or other whole grain pancake mix).
The best part is that any of these would be very well-received year round. And for your healthy hearts dessert: My friend Rachel and her mom (also a nutritionist!) made these adorable heart-shaped oatmeal raisin cookies from scratch:
- Avocado? Ooh la la. These 5 aphrodisiac foods actually have science behind ‘em.
- And on that note… Does getting it on actually burn that many calories?
- Our favorite chocolates (you must try the Noir spread… to die for)
After all these edible hearts, for some crazy reason GaGa is stuck in my head singing “he ate my heart”. How incredibly romantic… Happy valentines day <3
So are you running out to get a heart shaped cookie cutter ASAP or what? What are you going to make? and are you a v-day lover or hater?
