Recipes with heart for Valentine’s Day
Need some recipe ideas for a tasty, themed meal? We’ve got you covered.
Start your Valentine’s morning with heart-themed foods to get the day off to a good start! From there we have healthy appetizer, dinner and dessert ideas to keep you feeling the Valentine’s love. (Because nothing says “I love you” like heart-healthy meals!)
For breakfast: Double down on the love with heart-shaped eggs and fruit kabobs to wake the family up.
For lunch: The color of the day may be red, but don’t forget to get your share of green. This salad recipe is an easy, great option if you’ll be making a big dinner later.
Appetizer: Though delicious any day, this beet hummus is the perfect hue of pink for the special day.
Dinner: The benefits of consuming salmon are well-known: omega-3s, amino acids and protein (to name a few). Paired with tasty red pepper salsa, this good-for-you meal will hit the spot. Feeling real crafty? Cut a few hearts out of the red pepper for added flair.
Dessert: OK, sure. We wouldn’t mind digging into an oozing lava cake right about now. But you don’t have to binge on the bad stuff to get a tasty Valentine’s Day dessert. These Chocolate Almond Date Balls will satisfy your sweet tooth without all the added sugar.
Bonus! Before you kick back to watch a rom-com, take a long, romantic walk with your loved one. Take the time to talk and bond while working toward your recommended exercise.
