Happy Valentine's Day 2018

Written by
What are you giving your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day, especially if she/he is watching her/his weight? (Just don't forget to give yourself the right kind of love too!)
Try to take the emphasis off food gifts if possible. Here's how:
  • One website that had some interesting ideas helps you print out special Valentine coupons you can print out for a backrub, love speciality, breakfast in bed, date night, movie night, etc.
  • A CMWM recipe cookbook makes a thoughtful gift, just include a promise to make one of the low carb meals for your Valentine!
  • Flowers, perfume, and jewelry are always a great gift (just order the flowers in time and/or make sure the perfume is her favorite scent.)
  • Plants can even make a great gift too, and they last longer! Add a red bow and/or some other Valentine decorations to it and you have a special kind of homemade gift. Or buy some decorated ones already made up.
  • Make a homemade Valentine card with some of your best special creativity, with one of a kind sentiment on some unique Valentine paper in your best handwriting, (yes, hand writing).
  • Give chocolate, but make sure it's the right kind of heart healthy kind (at least 70% dark cocoa).
  • Think about giving a sport, activity and/or hobby related gift for your loved one.
  • How about a cute ceramic Valentine cup with your Valentine's favorite coffee beans or even a gift certificate for Starbucks (or even a gift certificate for Victoria Secret in it!). Throw in a few CMWM Chocolate Delites from CMWM, they always team up well with coffee and are diet compliant!
  • If the weather is nice try a CMWM picnic dinner on the beach, in the woods, or even by a cozy fireplace. Even a winter walk can be romantic.
  • Don’t forget pretty lingerie is always a treat for both of you!
  • If you still feel a romantic meal is the way to go, at least make it a healthy and low calorie one. Use something from the CMWM recipe cookbook or a clinic approved recipe. It won't make your Valentine happy to gain weight on a romantic evening.
  • Still need more options? Google "Romantic things to do on Valentine's Day" on the internet for more ideas!
 And on a lighter note, "If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?" - Author Unknown.  Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
