If you love someone who’s living gluten-free, sugar-free, Paleo, and/or doing Whole30, here are some beautiful and creative alternatives to the usual sweets.
I list the sources, but in most cases, these were just posted on Instagram; recipes are usually not given. So consider this inspiration, and do a little googling if you want to know more.
I love this gorgeous salad with heart-shaped strawberries and heart-healthy avocado, from Kirsten’s Whole30 (on Instagram; no blog). No recipe given, but I think this would go great with my sugar-free strawberry poppy seed dressing!
Who wouldn’t love heart-shaped bacon?! From pardon my paleo (on Instagram; blog). Find instructions on cooking bacon in the oven here.
And how to serve that bacon? With eggs, of course!
With heart-shaped hard-boiled eggs, of course! From pretend it’s a donut (on Instagram; blog).
Here’s a how-to video:
Heart-shaped fried eggs. Kitchen Stewardship gives instructions for doing this three different ways.
Also welcome on my plate any day: Gluten-free and/or Paleo waffles, cut into heart shapes, from Coco’s Paleo Kitchen (on Instagram; blog). Here’s her recipe for paleo waffles with cassava flour. (But if you want more options, I googled gluten-free waffle recipes for you.)
And if you’re not up for anything the least bit complicated? How about avocado toast on a heart-shaped plate, with a side of flowers. From sugar seriously sucks (on Instagram; no blog).
Another simple solution: just write some cute words on a banana or two. (From Gloryboon.)
