Your Guide To Healthy Eating On Valentine’s Day
Healthy Valentine’s Day Dinner Ideas You Will Actually Enjoy
Valentine’s Day is such a sweet holiday! Whether you’re spending quality time with the ones you love or celebrating the joys of new love, this holiday often involves a nice meal out on the town or even at home. Don’t let the stress of having to eat healthy ruin all the fun, Be Well 365 is here with suggestions for ordering and cooking healthy.
Grilled shrimp is a great option when ordering out. Trade the breading of fried shrimp in for light seasoning and you’ve got a delicious and healthy meal. Pair it with fresh veggies and a small side salad and you’ve got a full meal you can enjoy guilt free.
Below are a few dining options from the popular Sea Island Shrimp House. However, these are suggestions that can easily be applied to any seafood restaurant of your choice.
Wild-caught grilled shrimp seasoned with your choice of lemon pepper or diablo spice.
Grilled Chicken Platter
A lightly seasoned grilled chicken breast served with choice of two sides.
Garden Side Salad
Garnished with red onion, cherry tomatoes, carrots and croutons (ask for no croutons!) with choice of dressing.
Steak houses are another great choice when trying to stay on track while dining out this Valentine’s Day. Enjoy a steak paired with vegetables sauteed in butter for a low carb, protein packed delight. Steak and vegetables are also an easy while still delicious option if your Valentine’s Day plans include staying in.
Below are a few options from Outback Steakhouse, but again these can be applied to any steakhouse of your choice.
Seasoned and wood-fire grilled chicken breast with our signature BBQ sauce. Fresh seasonal mixed veggies.
Fresh steamed vegetables: broccoli, squash and carrots. Cut fresh daily, steamed with seasoned butter.
Mixed lettuce with Napa cabbage, dressing of choice, cucumbers, Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, red onions and homemade croutons (ask for no croutons!).
Can’t go without dessert?
It’s hard to imagine a Valentine’s Day without dessert. Try a cheesecake with fresh fruit, just be sure to avoid the crust. You can also enjoy a bowl of fresh fruit topped with whipped cream. If you don’t want to miss out on chocolate you can enjoy sugar free Hershey’s miniatures!
Outback New York-style cheesecake
Aussie-sized slice of premium New York-style cheesecake served with a choice of raspberry or chocolate sauce (go for the raspberry, and don’t forget to avoid the crust).
