Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. If you’re thinking of staying in and avoiding the crowds, take date night up a notch and cook a meal yourself. And when you want something that’s as healthy as it is delicious, try these date night ideas for two:
There’s something about pasta that just makes sense for a romantic date night. And who doesn’t love fettuccine alfredo? Unfortunately, most alfredo recipes aren’t very healthy thanks to a lot of cream and butter. That’s where this skinny alfredo recipe takes things in a healthier direction. By substituting Greek yogurt and 1% milk in place of heavy cream, the recipe tastes just as delicious as the fettuccine alfredo you know and love without the extra calories and fat. Use whole-wheat pasta for an added health benefit, and you have a delicious and nutritious date-night meal you can feel good about.
Peach Salsa Chicken
This peach salsa chicken comes together in about 30 minutes and uses vibrant flavors like jalapeno, lime juice, sweet onion, and peach to make a unique take on pan-fried chicken. By mixing broth and a peach mixture together and stirring in rice as a base for the chicken, you’ll have a delicious meal on hand quickly that’s sure to impress your significant other.
Roasted Veggie & Black Bean Tacos
Taco night is always a good idea, and it’s the perfect date night solution, too. Ever wish you could make a healthier version for dinner? You’re in luck. Try these roasted veggie and black bean tacos. Without meat or dairy, they’re completely vegan – but there’s no sacrificing on flavor. The recipe combines the healthy punch of root vegetables with classic Mexican flavors like cumin and chili powder to make a delicious, nutritious, ultra-easy date-night meal.
