Valentines Day Food

Valentines Day Food - Strawberries, Chocolate, and Champagne

Valentines Day Food is all about Chocolate, everything pink and/or red and shaped like hearts!  Heart Shaped Pancakes, Waffles, or French Toast, with Heart Shaped Potatoes, and Heart Shaped Strawberries are a great way to start the day! Valentines Day is a great day to surprise your loved ones with Breakfast in Bed!!

Food Substitutions for Chocolate, Chocolate, and more Chocolate!

  • This year 35 million heart shaped boxes of chocolate will be sold, but you must tango for 16 hours to burn off the calories!

  • A box of 25 truffles will set you back around 3,250 calories!

  • Try: 1 cup coconut milk ice cream, 1 cup raspberries, and 2 T sliced almonds for 270 calories!

  • Try: A fruit parfait of 1 cup fresh strawberries, 6 oz nonfat Greek Yogurt, topped with 2 T dark chocolate chunks for 200 calories!

  • Try: 1 cup of fruit to dip in 1/4 cup melted dark chocolate for around 180 calories.

  • Try: Large Strawberries dipped in dark chocolate for 74 calories for 2 of them.

  • Try: 10 raspberries with 1/8 cup of light whipped topping for 54 calories!

  • Valentines Day Food Treats for kids parties would be: strawberries and dried apricots dipped in dark chocolate, large pretzel sticks dipped in chocolate, smoothies made with low fat yogurt and fruit, fruit skewers with strawberry yogurt dip, or make a veggie tray in a heart shape surrounded by mini tomatoes, heart shaped peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwiches, or non food options.

I love the Heart Shaped Fruit Skewers with Dip! Who wouldn't love having these?

Holidays have become overly commercialized and centered on processed candy, sweets and other stuff! Simplify the season and develop healthy diet habits for your love of chocolate! A little great chocolate with fruit goes a long way! Strawberries dipped in chocolate can make you the hit of any party you attend, especially if you are a guy!
