There’s no better way to show your loved ones how much you care than cooking some of these Healthy Valentines Day Recipes for them. Food memories last forever.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show your loved ones how much you care for them by cooking something special that’s also on the healthier side. No money can buy a home-cooked meal made with whole ingredients. Remember, it’s the thought that counts, so don’t worry about making anything fancy.
Here are some tried and true healthy Valentines Day recipes that will brighten up anyone’s Valentine’s Day:
Healthy Valentines Day Breakfast Recipes
Start Valentines Day off by making a special breakfast for your sweetie. Pancakes and French toast are always a popular choice, but anything with strawberries or chocolate are Valentines Day appropriate in my book.
Healthy Valentines Day Sweet Treats
Everyone deserves a sweet treat for Valentines Day, whether it’s dessert or a chocolatey snack. Once again, chocolate and strawberries are my choice.
Easy Chocolate Mousse
Skinny Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits
Healthy Valentines Day Appetizer Recipes
I think appetizers are a romantic way to eat. One of my favorite food memories with my husband when we were first got married was sitting down in front of our favorite tv show and sharing appetizers.
To this day, I love small bites more than main courses, so my husband and I often order an assortment of appetizers instead of ordering dinner when we eat out. You get more variety, and it’s fun. Here are a few of my favorite finger foods and shared plates.
Crab Avocado Tomato Basil Appetizer with Wasabi Soy Dressing
the best Spanish Garlic Shrimp
Spicy Ahi Tuna Avocado Tartare Bites
Prosciutto Wrapped Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates
Healthy Valentines Day Dinner Recipes
You might ask what constitutes a Valentines Day Dinner. It’s all a matter of opinion, but I think the key is to make something that lets your Valentine know that you took the extra time to make them something special, something a little bit out of the ordinary. We are visual creatures, so dishes that are colorful and catch the eye are great choices.
Roasted Chile Orange Salmon with Fresh Fruit Salsa
Oven Braised Chicken Cacciatore
