healthy sweets for your sweetie

 This Valentine’s Day have your main squeeze bite into something sweet and healthy with these good-for-you goodies!

 

Babycakes bakery is great place to pick up treats if your sweetie is a vegan, these cupcakes are healthy, but still sure satisfy any sweet tooth

Strawberries are a great choice for Valentine’s Day.  They’re loaded with healthy minerals and vitamins, the kind that boost your immune system, improve brain health, and slow aging. Add a little dark chocolate and you’ve got a treat very few people can resist. Yeah, that’s sweet.

Dark chocolate — a potent antioxidant known to lower blood pressure — covered almonds are packed with protein and vitamins that not only taste great, but are healthy as well. Unless your sweetie is allergic to nuts — we suggest you find that out first — these are the perfect Valentine’s gift.

Angel food cake is really a star in the world of baking and confection. Named because of it’s light and airy texture, this cake is great because it’s low in calories but still offers a delicious sweet taste without the guilt.


girl scout cookies!

Since I am such a great aunt (and I have a secret obsession for tagalongs) I ordered several boxes of Girl Scout Cookies! I ordered some for home and work – samoas for Rich (his favorite), tagalongs for me of course and an assortment of others for my family…and maybe the tartelettes if they actually survive more then 2 days in my house! Heather R also ordered some from her relatives so we should be on cookie overload soon…yum! -Maria
