Katie's Healthy Bites: Sensual Valentine's Day Dishes by Kristine Brabson in Healthy Holidays, Katie's Healthy Bites, Valentine's Day, February 14, 2010
Valentine’s Day is here! For me, this means chocolates and romantic dinners, but that can also mean indulging in too many calories and fat. Fortunately, you don’t have to skimp on decadence tonight. Here, I’ve reworked a traditional Valentine’s Day meal, featuring a bison steak and comforting sides, to make easier on the waistline and pleasing to your palate.
Added bonus: These recipes contain some noted aphrodisiacs to help rev up the romance.
The Veggie Table: Vegan Pumpkin-Banana Bread Pudding by Janel Ovrut Funk in Cookies & Other Desserts, The Veggie Table, Valentine's Day, February 13, 2010
I just adore the month of February. I feel like we’re almost over the winter hump and can start looking forward to spring. Valentine’s Day is smack in the middle of the month and love is in bloom — plus, it’s National Heart Health Month! As a dietitian, I encourage eating healthfully for your heart, but at the same time, I have a sweet tooth. I just love all the heart-shaped sweet treats that line supermarket shelves this month.
This Valentine’s Day, I want to strike a balance between sweets and heart-healthy foods, so I’ll be making loved ones my Pumpkin Banana Bread Pudding. It’s made with fiber-filled whole-wheat bread, pumpkin and bananas, which are all heart healthy. Better still, this vegan recipe is free of saturated fat and cholesterol, which means it’s a treat for your ticker, too!

Katie's Healthy Bites: V-Day Breakfast in Bed by Katie Cavuto-Boyle in Healthy Holidays, Katie's Healthy Bites, Valentine's Day, February 7, 2010
Valentine’s Day is just a week away. A great way to spoil that special someone is breakfast in bed. You can skip the chocolates (or save them for later) when this savory frittata is on the menu. This breakfast beauty is quick and simple to whip up and you can use whatever veggies your special someone loves. (It’s a great clean-out-the-fridge recipe for a week’s end, too.)
I don’t know about you but I believe in the old saying: the fastest way to a person’s heart is through his or her stomach!
