Valentine’s Day is a little less than a week away and it’s a day spent with your loved one(s). I don’t know about you, but I much prefer to stay in on Valentine’s Day to avoid the over crowded restaurants and make a delicious healthy meal with my hubby. I usually try to make something a little extra special, like a nice filet, crab cakes or fresh fish. Oh and don’t worry I always include dessert!
Just remember, that even though Valentine’s Day is about loving those that are special in your life, it is also about loving your body! This year I decided to love my body by doing a 6 week “Love Your Body” challenge by the Tone It Up girls. I challenged myself to make healthy choices every day and to reach 100 miles (running, hiking & cycling) by V-day. I am almost there and feel great! So do yourself a favor and show love to your body on Valentine’s Day with a feel good work out and a healthy meal.
Healthy Meal Ideas
- Chicken Rollatini with Spinach alla Parmigiana
- Filet Mignon with a Balsamic Glaze
- Baked Lump Crab Cakes with Red Pepper Chipolte Lime Sauce
- Balsamic Salmon
Pair these main dishes with roasted asparagus to get your veggies in! If I know I am having dessert, I tend not to add a starch with my main meal, but a healthy starch you can add would be roasted sweet potatoes!
