Can you celebrate Valentines without candy?
January is a month of renewed will power when it comes to healthy eating and food choices. Which can make the arrival of Valentine’s Day candy in the stores a challenging temptation. But there are ways to celebrate without (eating) candy. Here are some to get you started. For more recipe and celebration ideas to refresh life, come follow me on Pinterest.
Decorate with Candy:
Have fun with the decorations – #teampink and #teamred are obvious choices, but #teampurple can also make a showing, as well as lace, glitter, sparkles and other fun elements. But if you want to put that candy to use in a calorie-free way consider other fun options. Like this candy-filled outer vase for your bouquet from the Crafting Chicks, or a quick and easy candy garland from Smart Schoolhouse.
Craft a Conversation:
Whether celebrating with friends, kids or your special someone, everyone can benefit from getting outside their conversational rut and learning something new about their friends and family. This fun craft from My Creative Days is easily customizable for your family and friends.
Tasty treats – with less guilt:
Skipping candy doesn’t mean forgoing festive foods – or even sensible sweet treats – altogether. Try Roasted Red pepper hummus with pita bread cut in heart shapes or raspberry lemon pudding cakes, and of course strawberries with a touch of dark chocolate.
Wear some Candy – on your nails:
Or some hearts, or some glitter – the 2019 Valentine’s Collection from Color Street has a little something for everyone! Color Street is the brand name of globally patented 100% Nail Polish Strips. These nail polish strips can be applied to fingers and toes in just a few minutes.
