Oh, Weight Loss, Will You Be My Valentine?

Oh, Weight Loss, Will You Be My Valentine?

Alex Brecher

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate what you love most: what gets you through each day, what you look forward to at work and at home, what comforts you and makes you happy. You know what we’re talking about. Oh, sure, there’s your significant other, but what really makes you tick? It has to be…food.

This Valentine’s Day, why not indulge in everything you love the most? Just make it healthy. Here are our suggestions for the foods you love while you lose weight.

Breakfast: Cereal

It is almost embarrassing to admit how much we love cereal. After all, it is simple and not terribly special…until you start cutting carbs and cereal does not make the cut. Our solution: Protein Cereal. Each serving has up to 15 grams of protein and little or no added sugars. Each serving is individually packaged, so there is no risk of eating the whole box without noticing.

Choose your favorite flavor, such as Honey Nut, Rich Cocoa, and even Chocolate Caramel Granola. Have it on its own or in milk or yogurt. You can even add nuts and fruit to make it the breakfast of your dreams.

Lunch: Tuna Salad and Potato Chips

That creamy tuna salad with 400 calories, over half of them from fat, is a thing of the past, but be honest: is it still haunting your dreams? Here is one solution: tuna salad made with non-fat Greek yogurt, celery, chives, mustard, and chopped dill pickles. Eat in in hard-boiled egg halves or cucumber boats, or do what you really want to do: eat it straight. You can swap eggs or chicken for the tuna.

Make it a truly loveable lunch with Protein Potato Chips in your favorite flavor, whether Ranch, BBQ, or Salt and Vinegar. Then finish up with a bag of cookies – Protein Cookies, of course. It’s a throwback to your carefree childhood.

Dinner: Spaghetti and Meatballs

Spaghetti and meatballs may have been one of the first dishes that you fell in love with, so why cut it off now? You can do it the easy way with Spaghetti and Meatballs Instant Entrée with 16 grams of protein, or let out the chef in you by starting with High-Protein Fettuccine and adding your own turkey meatballs and spaghetti sauce. Either way, you will be cutting the carbs and upping protein.

Serve it with a side salad with Low-Calorie Dressing – 20 calories per packet! – and follow it up with whatever Protein Dessert you want – chocolate cake, cheesecake, or a Chocolate Bar.

Whatever else happens this Valentine’s Day, make sure your day includes some love for your food, along with some weight loss. You’ll feel better all around!
