Nothing shows true love like food that is both romantic and healthy. Here are some Valentine’s ideas to get you started:
- Flowering tea served in a glass mug or wine glass, so your Sweetie can watch it blossom
- Heart-shaped dallop of salsa on top of a veggie omelet
- Yogurt or oatmeal with berries shaped in a heart on top
- Sprinkle cocoa nibs or cocoa powder on fruit, to promote feelings of looooove
Lunch or Dinner:
- Sexy salad–Did you know that lettuce was considered an aphrodisiac in Victorian times?
- Add wild Alaskan salmon or other cold water fish, for a youthful heart and brain
- Add heart-shaped carrot and cucumber slices to look like confetti
- Black forbidden rice is exotic and exciting…as grains go
- Mole sauce contains cocoa powder, so theoretically promotes feelings of love
- Parsley and mint, in recipes or just as a garnish, can help keep your breath fresh and kissable
- A brisk walk with your Sweetie not only prevents blood sugar spikes, but also promotes physical attraction. Research suggests that having an elevated heart rate together gets mis-attributed to love and attraction. What a perk!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
