Valentine’s Day The Healthy Way
Valentine’s Day is approaching and some of you may be wondering what to do for that special someone. Well Healthy Home Market and Farm 2 Family Foods are here to help you. Fixing a traditional candlelight dinner may be at the top of the list, so try to surprise your date with a healthy alternative. Healthy alternatives does not mean to feed your date wheatgrass and water, but there are natural meats and fresh selections to choose from at the store.
If having a big juicy steak is a must then be sure to try the grass-fed beef from the Two Moons local farm in the Carolinas. Two Moons Family Farms prides itself in producing all natural meat, using non-GMO feed, with no antibiotics or added hormones. Grass-fed beef has:
- Less total fat.
- More heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
- More conjugated linoleic acid, which is a type of fat that’s thought to reduce heart disease and cancer risks.
- More antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin E.
Grass-fed beef is said to have a cleaner and more flavorful taste when cooked.
Make sure you pair your steak with some fresh asparagus and roasted potatoes that can be found in the produce section of the store. Once you visit the produce section of the store you will see that you have a choice of organic and local produce as well.
Even though we are talking about healthy alternatives that does not leave out dessert! Yes, you can end your meal with some dark chocolate candies from the bulk section or the deli has cakes to choose from. You can even bake a cake whether it is sugar-free cheesecake or gluten-free chocolate cake using healthy ingredients from the store. Remember, staying low on sugars and carbs can still be tasty and enjoyable.
Then to end a beautiful dinner let’s not forget the wine or a nice cider! Healthy Home Market and Farm 2 Family Foods has a selection of wine and ciders that are all natural flavors and some are local from the Carolinas as well.
