Healthy Valentine’s Day Treats

As a registered dietitian there are certain expectations when it comes to celebratory snacks. People expect something beyond the traditional fun-sized candies for Valentine’s Day from my children.

I have to say, I am all too happy to oblige. Not because of the expectations, but because I like the process of coming up with a new, creative idea. Plus, anytime I can make fruits and vegetables a “treat”, count me in!

In anticipation of a busy week ahead, we made our valentines tonight. The winning treat? Cutie clementines – one of my kids’ favorites!

About thisRDeats

A mix of realism, humor, tips and delicious recipes. I am a mother, wife, passionate sewer and registered dietitian. I want to show people that food is medicine and getting back in the kitchen is the key to health. I love everything about food: gardening, shopping, cooking and most of all, EATING! Notice that "dishes" isn't on that list.... Food isn't perfect. It nourishes our minds, bodies and souls! As a blogger, journalist, speaker and broadcast professional, I enjoy talking about food and nutrition for websites, television, radio, magazines, and newspapers. I also work with companies to provide customized nutrition education and recipe development.
