What does Valentine’s Day mean to you? Well, to me it means showing a caring gesture to that special someone. The usual Valentine caring gesture is a card, chocolates or flowers. Does it really need to be something tangible? For me it is the thought that counts.
If your with that special someone maybe they will prepare dinner that night or clean up the kitchen for you or just say “I love you.”
If a person does opt to buy chocolates indulge in a bit of dark chocolate. As opposed to milk chocolate, darker chocolate contains higher amounts of flavanols. Like most of the phytochemicals, flavonols are active antioxidants that may protect your health through their ability to fight inflammation and neutralize free radicals.
Spice up her life. Preparing a romantic dinner, add more herbs and spices to the meal. Fish for your lover’s heart. Fish is a good choice for a romantic dinner and it’s good for the heart. Those good omega-3 fatty acids in fish have been shown to decrease the risk of heart disease.
Just enjoy the day, be kind to someone and smile – even to a stranger.
