On Valentine’s Day, you are out with your beloved and have made plans for the whole day. When you think of celebrating this day, we often visualize of cakes, desserts and decadent foods. While it is indeed a pleasure to devour these delightfully delicious treats, it may turn risky for your health. So it is not cool to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the healthy choice of desserts.
Read on to know about 5 super alternatives to calorie-laden sweets and candies.
1. Dark Chocolates
Valentine’s Day gifting is incomplete without including a box of chocolates. Fortunately, you do not have to give up on chocolates completely, and you can instead buy a hamper of dark chocolates and present to your sweetheart. Dark chocolate is a healthier choice as it is packed with antioxidants that reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Dark chocolate is known to be a natural aphrodisiac and will set the right romantic mood for the day.
2. Protein Bar
Gifting nuts is a smart choice that you can make for your beloved this Valentine’s. We all know that nuts are loaded with good fats that offer multiple health benefits. If your girlfriend/boyfriend is a health freak, you can even include Patanjali energy bars in your hamper. Priced at just Rs. 30 these bars are made from high energy foods such as cereals and fruits. You can easily indulge in these snacks without feeling guilty at all.
Instead of trying the artificial fruity flavors in dessert, make a smart choice by opting for fresh, seasonal fruits. How about sending a bouquet of skewered fruits instead of flowers or chocolates? Fruits like mango, strawberry, and kiwi are incredibly flavourful and sweet. You can even turn it into a delightful treat by drizzling some honey or dark chocolate sauce.
