Healthy date night ideas

Couple cooking together

Whether you’re dating or married, staying healthy on date night can be tough. Instead of the traditional extravagant meals and multiple cocktails, why not treat your special someone to a heart-healthy date night? Here are a few ideas to make your date night indulgent, special and healthy.

  • A Heartfelt Workout Playlist. Get your sweetie’s heart pumping  by uploading an upbeat, romantic playlist for him/her to work out to. Include songs that remind you of each other and times you’ve spent together.
  • A Couple’s Massage.  Release relationship stress and lower your blood pressure by booking a couple’s massage.
  • A Heart Rate Monitor. If your lover is a gadget geek,  what better day to surprise them with a heart themed gift?
  • Heart-Healthy Granola. Find a low-sugar, heart-healthy granola recipe online to bake for your valentine. I found a bunch for you here! Put it in a mason jar with red ribbon and paper hearts and you’re all set!
  • Fitness Class Date. Are you a yoga fan and your boyfriend is part of the Cross-Fit cult? Spend the day together at your favorite classes. Not only will you try something new and get to spend time together, his favorite could become your favorite!
  • Volunteer. Give to one another by giving back. Not only will you help your community, but it’ll feel good too.
  • Go For A Walk. Low on funds? Walking is free and gets your heart pumping.  Take each other to your favorite walking trails, taking pictures along the way to remember the day.
  • Make Fruit Pops. This is a fun thing to do if you have kids. Instead of making or buying sugary candy lollipops, make a healthy version at home using strawberries, pineapple, grapes, blueberries, the options are endless! It’s fun and easier to do than you think. An example tutorial is here.
  • Cook Together. Preparing a meal together is fun and if you’re in a new relationship, can be a great way to get to know one another. Keep it easy by preparing a basic pasta dish or be adventurous and try to make your own heart-shaped sushi.
  • Fondue For Two. Okay, if you really want to have chocolatey date night, far be from me to stop you. Keep it healthy by making a dark chocolate fondue and dunking fresh fruit like strawberries and slices of apple into it.

 

If you’re single like me on Saturday night, don’t be a scrooge. Grab a friend and show them you love them by doing something off this list. Spread the love!
