How not to stuff your face on Valentine's Day


Heart-shaped donuts. Chocolates. Conversation hearts. Chocolates. Cupcakes. Chocolates. V-Day is jam-packed with all sorts of heart-shaped, sugar-loaded deliciousness. And while we want to eat it all, we know that horrific bloated-tummy, sugar-coma feeling is just waiting for us at the end of our gluttony rainbow. Sigh.

 

This Valentine’s Day, we’ve got a new mission: Instead of over-indulging, we’ll be eating just the right amount of goodness and good-for-you-ness. Here’s our how-to (and trust us, we’re not sacrificing anything).

 

Step 1: Set aside a favorite

So you love Russell Stover Peanut Butter Hearts, like our senior editor, Trish? Well, if you can find these bad boys, you can have them. Keep a couple in easy reach that you can snag as the day goes on. It’ll leave you satisfied—unlike those red hots you’ll otherwise be gobbling by the handful.

 

Step 2: Compromise

Make a deal with yourself: You can have your favorite candies, but first, you’ve gotta eat some good stuff. Have a protein-packed breakfast, pack a solid lunch with lots of fiber-filled fruits and veggies and map out dinner with some hearty and healthy sides or starters, like an extras-packed salad. Eating super healthy will leave you full (in a good way), and make your treats feel like rewards for a meal well done.

 

Step 3: Split a decadent dessert

Two things here: One, yeah that king size candy bar looks amazing, but by the time you put away a quarter of it, you’ll wish you could just tuck it back in the foil for later. And two, don’t you wish your bestest buds would share their favorite treats with you? Uh huh, we thought so. Do the sweet thing, whether it’s dishing out heart-shaped peppermint patties to all your darlings in homeroom (yep, even though they were left by a secret admirer in your locker), or splitting that amazingly gooey molten lava cake at dinner.
