Guys can be either really lazy about V-Day or over-think it and determine to learn new skills, such as cooking, on one of the biggest hyped calendar dates in the year, February 14th.

You Will Need: Strawberries (washed and thoroughly dried) Candy Melts (pink and white) Chocolate chips (semi-sweet is best) Edible gold Edible glitter Edible embellishments (there's time to order from Amazon) Directions Melt the Candy Melts and chocolate (according to the package) in their own container/bowl. Dip strawberries into desired bowl and set aside. Drizzle a different color "melt" onto the dipped strawberries. Also, redip the strawberries in another "melt" at the tip and immediately dredge in edible glitter. Set these in a tray in the fridge and take out to de-chill a few moments before eating. These are fruity, gently sweetened with the chocolate and melts, and will look AMAZING with the edible embellishments!

You Won't Believe These Gift Wrapping Skills.
So, without fail, the holiday season always reminds me how absolutely horrible I am at wrapping gifts. I try, every year, to wrap them thoughtfully, with brand new wrapping paper boasting Christmas trees or stars or tiny penguins. However, it all ends up crumpled up into large balls of frustration around my living room, so whatever gift-wrapping inspiration you were hoping to get from me is just not going to happen any time soon. Not this millennium. However, check out the packaging handiwork of Sheila, a 27-year-old graphic designer from the San Francisco Bay who put the rest of us to some serious gift wrapping shame. Swipe left to each of these presents to see how they were wrapped - and prepare to be amazed. With a handy Xacto and some graphic design know-how, she transformed this small set of Gundams into a huge stick of butter. And what could she be doing with this copy of 'Falling Up'? Wrapping it up like a sirloin steak, of course. She actually designed her own fake butcher shop labels to pull this one off. I like this one because it (somewhat morbidly) stuck with the ocean theme. Okay, maybe it's just me, but I'd much rather have the giant candy bar. And the doughnuts. I mean, fairies are great, but check out all those sprinkles! It's crazy how realistic this sushi looks - even in photographs! And, last but not least, one man's Nintendo cartridge-inspired flask is another man's, uh... cheese? So what did you guys think? Could you pull this wrapping job off, or do you have a better, more signature strategy of your own?

Below is some background information about lupin and why you need lupin for chronic disease management. What Is Lupin? Lupin is a yellow bean coming from the legume family, closely related to soybeans and peanuts. It contains high amounts of protein, fibre, and a multitude of essential vitamins and minerals. Lupin is also non-GMO, low carb, low GI, and gluten-free, which is an advantage to vegans, celiacs, and keto dieters. Although only recently recognised as one of the best superfoods in the world, lupin has been around for centuries. The earliest known consumption of lupin can be traced back to early Mayan and Egyptian civilizations. Some countries in the Mediterranean regions, Latin America, and North Africa have continued their use through the years. However, because of its bitter and toxic qualities, the popularity of early lupin varieties did not take on. Europe and Australia bred this is a newer and sweeter cultivar. Today, lupin is found across different countries and continents, with most of the sweet lupin crops originating from Australia.
