It’s almost Valentine’s Day, which means a lot of men and women can expect a box of chocolates as a gift from their lovers. But that’s hardly the kind of gift someone looking to get in shape really wants to receive.

So, what kind of gift should you be considering for the health-conscious Valentine? The good news is that there are a number of potential gifts that say “I love you” just as loudly and boldly as a box of rather unhealthy chocolates…

 

1. Strawberries

Fresh strawberries are, arguably, just as sweet and delicious as any box of chocolates. Beyond that, they’re packed with antioxidants which are great for fending off cold and flu during the long (and often sickly) winter months.

Strawberries are simply loaded with vitamin C, which has been shown to boost a person’s immunity. Just one serving of strawberries contains more than fifty milligrams of vitamin C, that’s roughly half the daily requirement for an adult.
