If you would still want to give something blossomy-pretty, here are a few bouquet-inspired ideas on how to turn random things into something gorgeous and Valentine's-like. Not only are they gorgeous, but they are also yummy and good for our bodies.
Broccoli is a staple in most grocery carts of fit girls. For those allergic to fish, broccoli can be your source of Omega-3's. It's also got anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. It's also good for your digestive and cardiovascular system. Just get good broccoli (organic is best) and tie a ribbon with a short note. It also looks like a bouquet. If you're not a broccoli fan, you can use cauliflower, which can be "riced" and made into gluten-free cauliflower rice or pizza. You can also combine both cauliflower and broccoli.
Enoki and Bacon
Happy protein overload. This savory grilled veggie. They actually look like tiny boqueuts. Just grab a bunch of enoki (seasoned with olive oil, salt, and pepper) and then wrap them with bacon before grilling. Cool a bit before eating. Don't they look like tiny bouquets in the photo?
Strawberries are also associated with Valentine's day. Let's make this awesome fruit the star of the show. Did you know that they contain also a lot of antioxidants? They're also great in curbing PMS symptoms and prevent illnesses with the antioxidants. I've seen lots of tutorials on creating a strawberry bouquet. You can create your own and make it as small or as big as you want. For an added treat, dip some (or all) in dark chocolate for a nice treat. Even after dismantling the bouquet, the fruit will still be enjoyed in the form of smoothies, cakes, snacks, and even as it is.
Nothing makes a fit girl happy than the gift of #gainz or support towards the #roadtogainz so give her a stock of an after-workout muscle-building snack arranged like a bouquet or topiary in a flower pot. Make it one flavor (usually her favorite) or pick out her favorites and some bestsellers if you would want it assorted, Kinda unusual, but it's one happy gift for the one who wants some gainz.
Guys. I did something amazing. I cracked my own coconut and made this Acai bowl right here. 🌺 I did not buy this! Repeat: I did not buy this!! Feeling so proud of myself! ☺️ Made a brand new YouTube video for you on how to make your own DIY Acai bowls... so go watch on 📽YouTube.com/blogilates (link in bio). Btw, do you pronounce it ah-sai-EE, AH-sai, or ah-SAI-we? Hawaiian popsters help me out! #blogilates #cheapcleaneats
Not really floral-y but just as pretty, these are gorgeous IG-worthy treats that are great for breakfast. I posted a few smoothie bowl recipes earlier so you can refer to that or your own if you want to go DIY, This awesome acai bowl I found over at Blogilates looks super gorgeous (it's even got actual edible flowers! Substitute with food readily available and remember to use very little liquid with your fruit base. Frozen fruit too helps create that icecream-like consistency.
