2. Cook Together
Rather than blowing the budget by taking the family out for a rich meal at a packed restaurant on Valentine’s (good luck getting a reservation), why not gather up some healthy ingredients and create a meal from scratch with the kids?
Eating Well magazine makes the task a bit easier by sharing a number of healthy and quick recipes from chicken and spinach soup, to peanut noodles with veggies, to fish tacos with avocado salsa. Having your kids involved in the prep can help them foster a love of cooking, and isn’t this day all about love?
