One of the most romantic aspects of Valentine’s day takes place first thing in the morning. Breakfast in bed is a great way to show your valentine how much you care about them and start their day off on the right foot. Breakfast can set the mood for the rest of the day, and when that day is the most romantic day of the year you want to make breakfast that much more special. Contrary to popular belief, making the perfect romantic breakfast doesn’t have to be hard. You don’t need to use expensive ingredients and create a lavish menu. In fact, just a few twists on a simple breakfast can surprise and amaze your valentine.
You will want to plan your breakfast in advance though. So be sure to go to the store and stock up on any ingredients that you might need. Some of the more popular breakfast in bed ideas include:
- Heart-shaped pancakes or waffles – a bit of coconut or almond flour can create delicious pancakes. To add a special touch to this, make the pancake into the shape of a heart and top it with bananas and paleo chocolate sauce.
- Paleo crepes filled with strawberries and coconut whipped cream – there are many recipes for paleo crepes on Pinterest. If your valentine isn’t a fan of strawberries and whipped cream, you can easily substitute this for other ingredients.
- Bacon hearts with dijon glaze – this is a delicious and beautiful breakfast treat. Not only does the dijon glaze give the bacon a beautiful look, but it also takes the whole bacon experience to another level of goodness.
- Paleo scones and muffins – although delicious, traditional muffins and scones are not easily digested, leaving us feeling run down shortly after eating them. However when you make paleo versions of these things, you are making them with whole, unprocessed ingredients. In other words, they don’t just taste delicious, they won’t drain your energy.
If the paleo valentine in your life prefers a high protein breakfast, make them a delicious egg-based breakfast like a crustless quiche, eggs, and bacon, or a nice frittata. While eggs may not be very romantic, they can easily be paired with one of the above breakfasts to set the mood for the day.
When many people think of Valentine’s day, they think of romantic dinners and delicious desserts. But the romance of Valentine’s can start first thing in the morning when you start the day with breakfast in bed. If you are looking to add some more romance to the breakfast, try adding a delicious breakfast smoothie, lighting candles, or playing music. Even a quick 20-minute romantic breakfast can set your loved one up for a wonderful day.
