I have been both single and in relationships for Valentine’s day, so I speak from experience when I say that Valentine’s Day is a very weird holiday on both parts. V-day has always just be eh for me. I don’t hate it, I am not its number one fan. In my opinion, it is just a holiday in which everyone gets all stressed out and–more often times than not–just straight up sad on the 14th. Please people. Calm down. If you have a significant other, just relax. Spend the day together. Do not build these huge expectations of grandeur. My best Valentine’s day with my boyfriend at the time was a night spend at home making dinner together and watching Scrubs. If you are single, oh my gosh! Enjoy it! Once I embraced being single (and happy) this Valentine’s Day, I am more in favor of this day of love than I used to be.
I cannot tell you how nice of a Sunday I had–okay well maybe I can. It was a beautiful day! Sunny skies, melting snow, warm temperatures…sigh. It is glorious. For breakfast, I had half a grapefruit sprinkled with stevia and cantaloupe with ¼ cup cashews (not pictured). I always pair my fruit with a nut or fat of some sort to prevent drastic blood sugar spikes.
