Foodie Friday: Valentine's Edition

Berry Yogurt Delight for Valentine's Day

Valentine's day is coming up and you may be thinking about your plans. Are you going to go out to eat, have a night out on the town or make a special dinner at home? Today I'm going to be sharing with you an absolutely delicious yet healthy desert. I love treating myself time to time, but also still keeping it clean with wholesome foods.

What you will need:
Plain yogurt 

I made this simple desert by using Stonyfield plain organic yogurt, topped with blackberries and raspberries. Since it's expensive to buy organic fruit off season, I wash my fruit that is prone to higher pesticide reside in a mixture of water, baking soda and vinegar. I then added some homemade granola (oats, flax seed, honey, cinnamon, dried blueberries, almonds, natural peanut butter, unsweetened coconut, sunflower seeds). 

I used a recipe I found from Fitnessquinci's Instagram but varied it slightly. It's super easy to make, you basically just mix all the ingredients and bake! I find store bought granola contains a lot of extra unneeded sugar and usually has some sort of oil, usually soy which has likely been genetically modified. This way, you control exactly what goes into your food.

I simply sprinkle some cinnamon over and drizzle some local honey. This will not feel like a healthy treat at all. It tastes super indulgent and is really satisfying and filling. Chocolates are always great for Valentines, but so is a yummy healthy treat which won't leave you with regret after! So eat up and be healthy and happy. :)
