A Heart-Healthy Meal for Your Valentine

Guest Blog by Office Manager Margaret Craig

Valentine’s Day is coming up: a day for celebrating romance and affairs of the heart! So what better day to treat your loved one to a meal that is is both romantic AND heart healthy?

If you are looking for a special February 14th date-night menu, you’re in luck! Using Naturopathic doctor Dr. Kate McLaird’s guidance, we’ve planned a meal sure to impress!

Appetizer:

Start your Valentine’s evening off with some Beet Hummus and fresh vegetables such as carrot sticks and heart-healthy celery. The vibrant Beet Hummus looks beautiful for the Holiday, and contains cardiovascular-friendly ingredients such as garlic and walnuts!

Entrée:

Wow your partner with beautiful Baked Wild Salmon, full of Omega-3 fatty acids and delicious flavor. No need to be intimidated by cooking fish, it couldn’t be easier when you use your oven! Pair the salmon with a lush Kale salad, with crunchy toasted almonds and filling quinoa.

Dessert:

No Valentine’s meal would be complete without a show-stopping dessert. There is no need to sacrifice the heart-healthy theme of your menu when it comes to the temptation of a little something sweet for your sweetheart. Luckily for all of us, Dark Chocolate (70% Cocoa content and higher) is decadent, delicious, and a great choice when keeping your heart in mind. We recommend nibbling on deceptively fancy and tantalizing Spicy Orange Hazelnut Chocolate Bark while you cuddle up this Valentine’s. It is just the thing to wow your date and spice up the end of your evening!

Want to learn more about how you can improve your cardiovascular health naturally and safely? Schedule a 15-minute complimentary consultation with Dr. Kate McLaird here at the Toronto Wellness Centre. Remember: the best gift you can give your Valentine is many years together in happiness and good health!
