Replace the white bread for whole grain bread & add almond butter to make it complete.   Kiwi’s are in season right now and also make a perfect heart.

Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie

{You can find this delicious, creamy recipe here at allrecipes.com.} 

Since strawberries are not in season, frozen is a great alternative since most frozen foods are picked at their nutritional peak and preserved with only losing a small percentage of its nutrients.  ***Remember to replace the sugar (the recipe calls for 1.5 tsp.) with 1 to 2 dates.  The dates will amp the nutritional value while giving you the sweetness :)

For a little Indulgence ;)
