Healthy Valentine’s Day Breakfast Ideas

Traditionally, Valentine’s Day breakfast ideas are loaded with sugar and very indulgent. If you are on a special diet plan, watching your weight, or if you are getting ready for an upcoming fitness event then these breakfasts can be a no go option. If you still want to celebrate Valentine’s day with your significant other, there are options that you can create for breakfast that are healthy and not loaded with sugar. Here are a few ideas.

Strawberry Topped Banana Pancakes

Banana pancakes are very easy to make. All you need are eggs and bananas. Mix the two ingredients together until you get a pancake like consistency. Cook in the same way you would traditional pancakes. Top them with strawberries and add some organic honey to taste. This gives you the benefit of having potassium packed bananas, the benefits of organic raw honey, and the benefit of several fruit servings in one easy to make breakfast. Add a special touch by cutting the pancakes into heart shapes.

Red Heart Smoothie

Smoothies are a go to for many people who have busy lives. They are easy to make, easy to pack with superfood and protein, and can be sipped on while driving to work or dropping off the kids. You can make the smoothie special for breakfast and Valentine’s day by making it heart conscious and red. Use strawberries, pomegranate, and bananas to create a pink hue. Pack a bigger punch by adding greek yogurt. If you want, make some coconut milk whipped cream and top the smoothie for an extra addition to this special smoothie. You show you care about your significant other’s heart health as well as caring about them on such a special day.

French Toast with Red Coconut Whipped Cream and Honey

Does your significant other like french toast? If they do, then this could be the best breakfast idea for them. Use whole grain or gluten free bread to create the french toast base. Fresh ground cinnamon, almond milk, and egg substitute can take the place of more traditional egg bases for the toast. While your toast is cooking, you can create the whipped cream. Take a can of coconut milk and a stick mixer. Mix the coconut milk until you get a whipped cream consistency. Use this as the whipped cream and organic raw honey drizzled over the plate. It is heart healthy, healthy for you overall, and gives you the french toast you may normally crave.

These are just a few ideas. If you want more, or if you aren’t sure these are something your significant other would like, look to vegan options. The reason for this is that most vegan options are loaded with superfoods, give you energy boosts, and are loaded with fruit to give you a healthy start for the day.
