Sweet Treat Breakfast and Weekly Meals

On Valentine’s Day, I decided that I was going to make a slightly more decadent breakfast than usual.

I started by making a fruit salad.

The fruit salad contained:
  • 1/2 cantaloupe
  • 1 banana 
  • 1 apple
  • 10 strawberries
  • 1 mango
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Cinnamon
  • A few drops of agave nectar
To go with the fruit salad, I made a yogurt sauce. It was really good, and everyone loved it.

The yogurt sauce contained:
  • 1 container Chobani nonfat yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon Sour Cherry Preserve  – sooo good!
  • A few tablespoons whipped cream
I first mixed the preserve and the yogurt very well and then folded in the whipped cream. The yogurt sauce was slightly sweet and incredibly light and airy. Sooo good!

I also heated up some whole wheat pancakes that I had frozen a while back. They were sort of an afterthought, so I didn’t take a picture. However, everyone loved the yogurt sauce on top of the pancakes the most!

I think it’s time to plan meals again, so here we go:

Tuesday: Brown rice pasta with organic, grass-fed beef and vegetable sauce and a salad.

Wednesday: Salad topped with salmon salad. I’ll mix boneless, skinless canned wild salmon with lemon juice, wasabi mayo, and capers and top a lightly dressed salad with it.

Thursday: Veggie burgers.

Friday: It’s Salad Friday. I’ll try to be creative… :-)
