Day #26

Happy Valentine’s Day!

 Sean:

Every holiday I make Kristen a holiday themed breakfast. I had to search a bit to find a healthy Valentine’s Day breakfast recipe. (A lot of recipes claim to be healthy.)

This morning I made Kristen Ezekiel bread French toast topped with berries and mini egg and veggie muffins that I arranged into a heart shape. Success!

 Why Ezekiel Bread?
