Going out for Valentine’s Day was always overrated, in my opinion. Sitters are hard to get, restaurants are packed, and the good dessert is always sold out. Instead of dealing with the drama of it all, I prefer to stay home and make the exact meal I want. In fact, I love to make salad and pasta, because the kids can have theirs, and then after I send them to bed, we can have a romantic dinner in peace (and I didn’t have to make two dinners). But the best part is dessert (OK, the real best part is later, but we’re focusing on food here people, don’t get sidetracked).

Food is everywhere during the holidays. If you’re like everyone else, you don’t want to miss out on the fun treats all around. To avoid overindulging, it’s a good idea to keep plenty of delicious and nutritious snacks on hand. That way, you’ll feel satisfied without suffering the sugar crash that sends you back to the platter for more cookies 20 minutes after the first splurge!
Your kids are moving on up! With new subjects, more work load and maybe a tighter schedule, your young ones are going to need to be on their toes this school year. For these super-hero students, be sure to pack them snacks which are jam-packed with super foods (read: super nutrition!). And set an A+ example by eating these snacks yourself and ridding the pantry of any high-calorie, sugary no-nos.
When it comes to monitoring health, many people associate the color red with alarm–a warning sign from the body that’s something’s amiss. But when it comes to healthy eating, red can be an outstanding choice! The pigments that give red foods (blue and purple edibles, too) their nutritious properties are called anthocyanins–and they’re well known as antioxidants.
This Valentine’s Day, prepare a meal for your man that not only tantalizes the taste buds but entices the mind and body. Whip up a dish featuring a few of these top aphrodisiac foods to ignite a fire that will burn all night long.
