Valentine’s Day!

People celebrate this day all over the world. Often times it is celebrated with buying candy or going out to eat. Substitute the candy and get a basket of fruit instead. If you are going to a restaurant, stay away from the bread/chips. If it’s a must have, take one roll or a small handful of chips and move it to the other side of the table. Get a light salad to start; this will help fill you up. Portion control is very important to eating healthier. Get a doggie bag right away; put half of your meal in it before eating. Don’t add the little extras to your meal: butter, cheese, high-fat dressing, bacon bits, etc. Put your sauce on the side of your plate and get veggies instead of French fries. Remember when ordering, grilled food is always healthier than fried food. Forget the cocktails; they are usually loaded with sugar. A glass of red wine will hit the spot if needed. Go for a nice romantic walk on the beach. Don’t deprive yourself, but don’t over indulge either. Most of all enjoy the new healthier you.
