So valentines is all about the one you love not all of us have that someone to spend time with so if that’s you the. It’s about self love a new concept to me. After years of hating myself and punishing myself I am ready to love every part of my body and mind. So if you’re on your own make your fav meal and fav movie do some home spa treatments read some self help books and make yourself open and ready for that perfect someone. You need to be in the right place in your life to meet the right person for you love yourself first and love will fins you.
For those lucky enough to have found the one to spend valentines with I’ll help you with some delicious meals that will raise your temps at meal time.
So we all have know about chocolate but not the dairy bars real chocolate with high cocoa content so try swapping the fat and sugar choc bars for dark chocolate it’s actually good for you it has antioxidant properties and produces serotonin and raises your libido.
So I have created a few recipes you can try out tomorrow.
Make sure you book your morning off work for this one.
High protein egg and banana pancakes
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp cocoa if you want choc ones
Then add to the pan
Then serve with natural Greek yogurt, blueberries, sprinkle some cinnamon and honey or maple syrup and pumpkin seeds
Serve with grape juice as this will give your partner some energy
Turmeric latte helps with depression
Eggs and cocoa both help produce serotonin the good mood hormone, cocoa for your libido, cinnamon is good for your fertility as are the pumpkin seeds, bananas will give you energy.
Smoked salmon and eggs 🍳
Grill the salmon
Mushrooms fill with pumpkin seeds and Parmesan cheese and pesto and grill
Grill some tomatoes
For the eggs use 4 for 2 people
Whisk add a tbsp milk, pinch of salt and some Parmesan. Stir occasionally and take off heat just before it is completely cooked
Serve on a wholemeal toaster or bagel
Again as above and the salmon is packed with omega 3 and Vit B12 which produces serotonin to help you relax and wholegrains will give you stamina.
Then your romantic 3 course meal could be
To start figs and Camembert cheese or Brie melted in oven and sprinkled with honey, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds
Choose a meat so if a steak do not chargrill it is actually harmful to eat over cooked beef it actually produces toxins so learn from the French
Chicken, turkey, Tuna or salmon are all good choices
Serve with tomatoes, green peas, avocado, green beans, broccoli, potatoes all great for energy and serotonin production.
Another option would be a curry
Chicken, turkey, soya bean, chickpea or salmon curry.
Turmeric is great for depression, add some
Cayenne for detoxing and add some pumpkin seeds great for your fertility of you need a little help in that direction then add some cinnamon in as well.
Dessert my fav part
So you can have a yummy cake with no processed sugar which at the end of the day makes is fat and tired and you don’t want that on Valentines night.

So what will I be doing this valentines
Some self love
Bubble bath with Epsom salts
Watch my fav movie probably a romance I’m
A sucker for them especially the romantic comedies
Maybe a wee glass of wine or might even treat myself to some bubbly
A lovely card from my kids
Make others practice self love and not be lonely
This is what I would do but my kids are taking me out for valentines dinner this year a 2 for 1 and then I’m going to meet some new people who like me have been looking for their purpose in life and we have gotten together to create #purposeenterprises a vision to help different types of mental illness and get to the route of it and provide solutions through help with jobs, health, nutrition, alternative remedies, therapies, counsellors, meditation, love, how to be sustainable financially and in regards to the planet our home.
So busy times but my girls always come first everything I do for them is love 💕
Valentine gift ideas
Flowers are always good but have something really personal
Make a gift
Picture on a frame of a special time
Make her fav meal
Take her for a picnic, boat ride something she’s always wanted to do
Spa day for both is always good
Writing them a letter or a poem
Doing something adventurous they have always wanted to do
A special book they’ve always wanted
Something they’ve always dreamed of that special bag or shoes
