Healthy Valentines day!
Your sweetheart may have the key to your heart, BUT eating healthy and being physically active can be the key to a healthier heart. Whether you plan to celebrate on your own or with someone special, use these tips to give a gift of health to you or someone you love on Valentine’s Day and all year long.
Rather than tempting your beloved with sweets…try these delicious yet HEALTHY tips & alternatives!
Ditch the posh dinning out and treat your other half with your extensive culinary skills at home instead – see below for some great desserts ideas!
If you are planing on a romantic dinner out – eat light throughout the day (lots of fruits and veggies, no carbs) or even squeeze in a workout to save some extra calories for later.
When dining out in Brighton or Hove = step away from the bread basket and remember that restaurant sizes are often larger than normal – consider eating half of your meal and putting the rest in a doggie bag.
If you and your significant other are trying to lose or maintain weight, consider purchasing a fruit basket instead of a box of chocolate, or baking a low-calorie dessert (see recipes bellow). A bouquet of flowers, healthy cookbook, personal training sessions or a day spa gift certificate could also prove worthy gift substitutes!
Overdosed on chocolate? Work it out! Drinking tons of water is also beneficial and ginger tea can fasten and smoothen the digestion.
