This Valentine’s Day is super different in this house. Last year Valentine’s Day would have meant Justin bringing home candy for the kids and himself. But since the great hip replacement of May 2013 he has completely changed his diet and lifestyle and candy is not even a blip on his radar. He’s been grain free since last August, and pretty much on a Paleo diet since last October. It’s really helped his auto-immune disease and we’re lucky to have seen so many improvements in his health.
Since he’s my Valentine, I thought it be kind of fun to make him up a Valentine’s Day “treat” he could take with him to work, and a cute printable to attach to the treat and slip in his lunch. I came up with the idea to combine a few of his every day snacks into one and attach the printable to jar. This combo is raw sprouted almonds, raw pepitas, dried unsulfured berries and raisins. You could use different nuts, seeds, or berries, and add grain free dairy free chocolate chips if you’re so inclined.
I also made four different printables in case any of you have a Valentine who is eating a paleo diet and wanted to send them off to work with a cute valentine and treat.
You can print all four at once, or print them individually. I’ve created Google docs for the printables and you can find them all by clicking on the links below. Feel free to print them and use them for your own Valentines.
