~ Happy Valentine’s Day! ~
This Valentine’s Day we’re thinking outside the chocolate box. Cupid is no dummy when it comes to starting the day off right. He has plenty of opportunities to eat sweets and goodies, but knows he’ll need to stay healthy and full of energy for the task at hand.
After all, being the symbol of love and master of attraction and affection is no easy task.
Cupid’s Breakfast Salad is balanced beautifully with all kinds of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and healthy fats.
There’s even a little bacon on top to add a bit of salty, smokey, goodness.
Cupid knows that bacon spells L-O-V-E.
His dressing is made with tart cherry juice, the deep and romantic color of the heart. Tart cherries reduce inflammation, lower the risk of stroke, fight that tummy jiggle, and are loaded with melatonin to give a peaceful start to the day.
Cupid wants only what’s best for you when it comes to matters of the heart and health.
“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” ―Virginia Woolf
