Have a Healthy Valentine's Day ...

For me Valentine’s Day has always meant candy.  After all there is beautifully packaged candy everywhere you look at this time of the year.  I usually do pretty well resisting the temptation by repeating "just say no" over and over as I keep walking right out of the store. 

This year I have gone one step further than just avoiding all the sugar.  I began to wonder if it's even possible to celebrate Valentine’s Day without candy or sweet treats and still have fun.  A little research has brought me to the conclusion that YES, it can be done! 

Take a look at the tempting, and healthy, Valentine’s Day foods I came across ...
