I love Valentines Day. What could be more important to stop and focus on than loving others? One quote I often think about is by William Shakespeare who said, “They do not love who do not show their love.” It motivates me to show my love more clearly and not assume that others know I love them. One of my favorite ways of showing love is to make people special food.
On Valentines Day morning, if you need a quick and simple option, these little pizzas are it. I especially recommend this idea for kids. Top any kind of flat bread (pancakes, waffles, or toasted English Muffins as shown here) with some peanut butter or non-dairy yogurt and make a little pizza. You can do it yourself or let kids make their own.
A tiny heart-shaped cookie cutter would come in handy for making hearts out of banana slices, strawberry slices, etc. but I couldn’t find one small enough. You can just use a knife, or order these tiny cookie cutters used for bento boxes (affiliate link). I’m sure they would come in handy to make fruits and vegetables more fun to eat all year round!

These Red Velvet Beet Pancakes from Emelie Eats are WFPB and gluten-free. Their beautiful color comes by simply added some beet puree (blend up some canned beets NOT pickled, or boil a fresh beet).
I also want to try these Strawberry, Banana and Almond Oat bars from My Quiet Kitchen.
Some other simple ideas are a strawberry smoothie, or a bowl of oatmeal or rawnola with strawberry hearts and fruit on top.
