Valentine’s on a Health Budget

Hate it or love it, Valentine’s is a sweet, pink and corny day that either brings out the best or the bitterest in all of us. Whether you have a date this year or will be enjoying it with a little self-love, it’s the one day when you can trust that all nutrition plans fall out of the window.

That doesn’t need to happen!

Here is a simple, 3-course dinner meal that you can make at home that is filled with all the romance and heartiness of a shared meal and the comfort of a solitary banquet.

Starter

Avocado and Tuna Tapas

From the taste to the health benefits, avocados should just be considered the food of the gods. They contain more potassium than bananas, are loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and fiber. Add to that some protein-rich tuna and you already have the setting of a great dinner.

Note: Substitute plain, low-fat cottage cheese for mayonnaise for an even healthier option.
