Valentine’s Day is upon us, and no matter what your relationship status, there is one relationship you can always celebrate: your relationship with yourself!
Now, before your roll your eyes, think about it for a second. Have you been in any relationship longer than the one with yourself? Who is there for you every morning? Who is there with you when times are tough? Who is your partner for life? YOU!
So, this Valentine’s Day, we are focusing on us, and putting some attention on how we are nourishing ourselves. Here are three nutritious meals that you can enjoy this Valentine’s Day.
Breakfast: Banana Oatmeal Pancakes
You can’t go wrong with pancakes for breakfast; they’re a classic. But this recipe takes pancakes to a whole new level.
First, the recipe is only 7 ingredients that are thrown into a blender. Quick and efficient. Second, these pancakes are gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar free! And third, they are loaded with heart-healthy oats and potassium-rich bananas. A great way to start the day and show your body (and taste buds) some love.
Lunch: Stuffed Avocados
We love avocados! They’re an excellent source of heart-healthy fats, potassium, fiber and antioxidants. In this recipe, they make the perfect bowl. Take that nutrient powerhouse and fill it with omega-3 rich seafood? Now that’s love.
This recipe looks impressive, but only takes about 20 minutes to make. We’re pretty sure you’ll make a few people jealous.
After a packed day, this recipe is the perfect way to wind down. Stir-fry is always a great option if you’re looking for a quick meal or looking to use up some leftover ingredients.
For this loveable recipe, protein and fiber-rich quinoa, lean chicken breast, and broccoli, a great source of vitamin K and C, are mixed together and dressed with a decadent peanut dressing. And don’t forget a nice glass of wine.
Show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day with delicious and nutritious food. You deserve it!
