Valentine’s Day Treat – Makeover
Valentine ’s Day doesn’t have to be the waistline downfall it is typically made out to be. If you thought sweet treats couldn’t be healthy, think again. Here are just a few ways to be sweet and good to eat.…
- The classic chocolate covered strawberry: try dark chocolate or drizzling chocolate across them instead of dunking them. http://thevegan8.com/2015/02/12/healthy-valentines-day-candy/
- Watermelon hearts: use a cookie cutter to make hearts and other shapes out of watermelon for a fun fruit salad. http://witandwhistle.com/2011/07/05/cookie-cutter-fruit-salad/
- Rice Crispy Treats: use brown puffed rice or another whole grain cereal instead of regular. Sub the melted butter for your nut butter of choice (like peanut butter or almond butter) and top with pink and white sprinkles. They can be made in to tons of shapes too from traditional bars, to balls, to hearts, or “X”s and “O”s.
