Healthy Holidays Part 3: Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a great time to celebrate your relationship with your loved one, but unfortunately many of the traditional ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day are rather unhealthy. Do you usually gorge on chocolate, eat a rich dinner, and sit through a movie? Perhaps this year, you can celebrate with some of these healthier ideas:
1. Instead of going out to a high calorie dinner, stay in and cook a healthy dinner together with lots of veggies! Try to incorporate as many different red foods as you can to keep with the Valentines theme!

2. If you do go out, consider sharing multiple appetizers, splitting an entrée, and sharing dessert. Tapas style dining can be way more fun and much lighter fare – plus you can both try everything!

3. Instead of giving chocolates or candy, give an ornamental fruit bouquet! Or you can always compromise with some dark chocolate dipped strawberries!

4. Instead of sitting at the movies, go for a hike together, go bowling, or try one of these other active dates! Going out and doing something fun together will make great memories and can set the day apart from every other day together.

5. Single? Don’t just stay in on the couch and have a romantic comedy marathon – go out dancing with friends and just go do something active that is just for you! Maybe take a walk around your favorite neighborhood and try something at a new restaurant – you never know who you might meet!
