Health Tips for Couples Series - Post 5

Although meal prepping is a great way to stay on task for healthy eating, it is nice to switch things up a bit and have a fresh, different meal once in awhile. Usually that means going to a restaurant, flexing your willpower muscle, and trying to come up with the most health conscious item on the menu.

Instead of stressing over what they’re serving, serve yourself! A date night in is much more intimate, gives you more control on what you’ll be eating, and gives you quality time with your partner.

So next time you are stressing over how date nights will fit into your health goals, suggest a new kind of date night: spending time at home with your loved on and your fresh and homemade favorite food! Setting a fancy table with fresh flowers and non-scented candles can make your date night just a little more special.

Changing eating habits is much easier said than done. Luckily, there are plenty of healthy swaps to crowd out the unhealthy food in your diet and fill up on nutrients!

For example, experimenting with herbal teas is a great (and delicious) way of curbing a soda habit. Herbal teas are caffeine free and come in numerous varieties.

Also, if you are looking to indulge in some of the “bad,” like a soda or dessert, commit to sharing it! That way you are both making the decision to have it together and you’re only having half!

Just make healthy switches when you can!
