Perfectly Paleo Valentine's Day Dinner!

In the bad old, unhealthy days, I used to bring my family on Valentine's day to a local pizza restaurant- they offer a heart shaped pizza, along with a free balloon!!

My daughter, in particular, just loved the experience!  

So, what is a Paleo Jay to do?  I know- a MEATZA!  I've heard of these, but never tried one yet- so, here goes:

Preheat oven (or grill!) to 450 degrees

1 egg
Italian seasonings  

Whisk together well in a large bowl, then mix in 1 pound grass-fed (ideally) ground beef.  Or use ground turkey, or ground pork...

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, or using aluminum foil for the grill, spray liberally with olive oil

Take egg/meat mixture from bowl, and form into a heart shape!  

Bake 15-20 minutes or until done and firm

Top with sauce, (raw, if you can get) cheese, and toppings.  

Return to oven until cheese is soft and bubbly!

Now, run out and buy a huge, helium filled balloon!  While you are gone, your significant other can either make the sugarless, flourless chocolate cake!  from earlier on from paleojay, of else you can try this:

Take a cup or two of full-fat Greek yogurt, and mix in 4-5 packets of "Truvia" stevia. Also mix in 2 Tablespoons of liqueur of your choice.   Stir well!

 Spoon out and fill however many nice little desert cups or wineglasses for those in your family...

Top with raspberries, strawberries, or both- and voila! 

Your balloon will just top off some very happy family memories!  And some uplifting and healthy dreams.
