Valentine's Crepes

     Boots are made for walkin' but Crepes are made for lovin'!  Valentine's Crepes are a perfect case in point.  And the best part is, these can be devoured all year long... just make sure to budget them in on a day that is devoted to all things love.  Valentine's Crepes are 375 calories, 55g net carbs and 7g protein for 3 Banana stuffed Chocolate and Strawberry topped Crepes, each Crepe alone is 69 calories, 9g net carbs and 1.3g protein.  The batch makes 11 Crepes, so let your imagination run wild with filling options for the left overs!  Sweet or savory, everything's better wrapped in home made Crepes.  :)

Happy Valentines Day!  Enjoy  :)
