Healthy Valentine's Day Snacks

Love is in the air and with it the soft aroma of chocolates and a bouquet of sweet treats typically aren’t far behind. Though it can be quite sweet to treat your significant other with all the standard saccharine confections, nothing says you care like a gift from the heart- and the best gift may be a bit more heart healthy than your typical fatty candies and snacks. To help you find the perfect balance between heavenly and healthy, we have a wide variety of wholesome delights that offer the same saccharine bliss without the guilt.

For the Food Lovers

Opting for a more nutritious nibble supplies more than a feeling of satisfaction and a simple contribution to your overall wellness; the right foods help support a balanced disposition and provide plenty of energy to enjoy the company of that special someone. Lighter desserts and dishes can prevent the two of you from being overwhelmed by the languid exhaustion that often follows a feast of fattier foods.

A healthy dinner won’t be the only thing you’ll be eating on Valentine’s Day, and the wrong snacks or treats can certainly contribute to that feeling of fullness that may ruin any after-dinner plans. Rather than offering opulent candies to your valentine, there are an abundance of confections available that will satisfy that craving for chocolate without the surplus of refined sugars.

Though a sweet date may start with a gift of candy and flowers, your special someone may also appreciate a more substantive nibble before your candlelight dinner. Whether you’re aiming to quell your hunger while awaiting the full spread that awaits, stocking your picnic basket for an adorable lunch date, or aiming to offer an idyllic dessert- your preparation will be made much easier with our healthy recipes and a selection of similarly scrumptious sweets.
