Living a healthy lifestyle includes maintaining a healthy relationship. Take some time away from the stresses of everyday life whenever you can by preparing a healthy, flavorful meal for two in your own home instead of dining out. Have fun, eat well, save a few bucks and create an opportunity to enjoy each other’s company without feeling rushed or distracted.
Preparing the meal together can be a lot of fun too, even if one or both of you don’t cook. Choose an easy, flavorful recipe you’ll both enjoy and plan your meal in advance by having the ingredients and utensils readily available. Start by creating a romantic mood that includes candles, soft music, and no distractions. If you choose a meal that requires baking time you can take advantage of a few moments to relax and enjoy a beverage and appetizer. Don’t forget to add a decadent, yet healthy dessert to complete your romantic meal for two. If you are short on time, stick to very simple recipes or cut a few corners by using some pre-made items to make things easier.
