9 Healthy Alternatives to Valentine's Day Chocolate. Ah, sweet, sweet Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. You know what that means: it’s time to dress up in a beautiful outfit, dine on fantastic food, and enjoy time with your significant other. Oh, wait. We forgot the best and worst part: chocolate.
We call it the best part because (let’s be honest) who doesn’t love chocolate? Most of us could live off chocolate until the day we die, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s healthy. And that is a perfect segue to the worst thing: it’s unhealthy for you. Some reports claim that eating a bit of dark chocolate every day can actually improve your health, but we’re pretty sure we haven’t read a single study that said eating a half pound of milk chocolate by yourself in one night was going to help your body.
The issue for Valentine’s Day is that it can be hard looking for an alternative to chocolate. Maybe you and your significant other are trying to eat healthier and chocolate would completely ruin that. Or maybe you found the one person on Earth that dislikes chocolate. Whatever your reason, we’re here to help.
We’ve found some great alternatives to Valentine’s Day chocolates that are healthy and delicious. No, we’re not going to tell you to get your loved one a box of carrots. These surprises are delicious and will make your holiday just as special—just without all the extra calories, fat, and sugar.
