This Valentine's Day Woo Your Partner With These Healthy Treats

Nothing says how much you love your partner more than a healthy meal to give a fresh new start to your Valentine's Day. And thinking about your partner’s health is the most sensible and caring thing to do. We promise you that the dishes will get a whole lot sexier with a healthy twist.

And you don’t really need to use refined flour or sugar to make your sweet treats interesting. Whole grains which are rich in fibre and protein are the best choices. Some healthy grains like oats, cous cous, quinoa, amaranth, whole wheat; rye, maize, muesli, granola and multigrain bread are excellent options. Besides, they are also excellent sources of B complex vitamins and most essential minerals. 

Nuts and oilseeds like almonds, walnuts, dried figs, raisins, berries, dates, prunes, sunflower seeds, pumpkin, chia seeds, flaxseeds etc. are a great source of healthy fats such as MUFA, omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E. These have varied benefits when consumed with breakfast since they catalyse the absorption of your overall nutrients consumed in your first meal of the day making your breakfast healthy and nourishing. They help to reduce inflammation, boost immunity, provide satiety and are an excellent source of energy, fibre and antioxidants.
