We hope you enjoy the new view points and unique content; if so, we encourage you to show these guest bloggers your support by visiting their blog and social media links at the end of this post!
Today we have an awesome round-up of amazing looking ideas for the loves of your lives on Valentine’s Day from Tara of The Foodie And The Family. I love her idea of the day being about filling the home with delicious foods that also nourish the ones you love. She also guest posted another great idea for us last year, on meal planning withing a budget for a large family. I suggest you check it out and then go follow Tara from the links at the bottom of this post so you don’t miss any of her great ideas!
I’m Tara and I’m about to spend my 18th Valentine’s Day with my amazing husband! The pre-paleo tradition was that my husband would leave a bag full of chocolate and a gushy card waiting for me when I woke up. The post-paleo tradition is to feast on delicious, homemade food…starting with breakfast! I cannot wait to spoil the people I love with a day full of delicious food!
Strawberries & Cream No-oatmeal, Coconut Crepes, Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Supper is my favourite holiday meal to plan because I can go all out! Delicious, flavour-filled dishes that have been prepared with love!
Maple Balsamic Salmon, Zucchini Fettuccine with No-fredo Sauce, Orange Ginger Chicken Drumsticks
Let’s face it…Valentine’s Day is all about the sweet stuff. For us, it’s gotta be chocolate!
