A healthy pink soup on Valentine’s you say? We’re swooning already. While borscht is a beet soup usually served with sour cream, the switch to Greek yogurt boosts its health factor. With five grams of protein, oodles of B-complex vitamins, and only 73 calories per serving – this borscht is the perfect healthy soup.
This light combination of salmon and citrus is just what everyone needs to keep from feeling uncomfortably full on their Valentine’s date night. Don’t like citrus? No problem. Trade the citrus for chopped apple and minced jalapeno for a spicier option!
This low-carb dinner for two is a great way to impress your SO without breaking the bank or your back. The tangy honey-mustard marinade helps keeps the chicken moist and delicious. Pair this dish with the veggies of your choice and be prepared to amaze your lucky date.
We may never truly know what it is about steak that just screams romantic dinner, but we sure aren’t complaining! Paired with a rice mix of carrots, green onions and the perfect pop of Valentine’s red chopped cherries – this meal is the perfect date night dinner for two.
