Ideas for a Healthy Valentine’s Day!
Is candy a no go? For those who are exploring a healthier way to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, we have a few treats that you’ll love and will love you back. According to the census bureau, Americans eat more than 24 pounds of candy per person each year. It can be hard to avoid, but there are other great things to eat.
February is also national heart month, so why not focus on some heart healthy treats.
For breakfast, think a fruit smoothie packed with berries, which are a wonderful antioxidant. For 12 ounces, there’s 220 calories and 0 grams of fat. You can make it with Greek yogurt or milk.
Looking for a satisfying snack? We recommend nuts, which are a wonderful heart health food. You want to portion them out, however: 1 ounce almonds is 160 calories and 12 grams of fat; 1 ounce walnuts is 180 calories and 18 grams of fat.
And what about that sweet tooth? Two dark chocolate strawberries have 80 calories and 4 grams of fat. Studies are showing dark chocolate has some heart health components, as well. Just remember that dark chocolate needs to be 70-percent or more dark chocolate. You can even add a few almonds to the chocolate strawberries.
