Nutrisystem Valentines Treat

Valentine’s Day is coming, and since the hubby and I are doing the Nutrisystem program together, we’ve been planning ahead for how to celebrate while still staying on track with our weight loss.

Dieting might not seem like the most romantic topic for a Valentine’s Day post, but one of the things we love about being on the plan is that we’re doing it together and we’re having fun with it! Instead of our usual update, we’ve put together a special list of some of our favorite Nutrisystem foods and desserts to plan the perfect day of romantic meals:

Breakfast in Bed

Ham And Cheese Omelet

Hubby’s favorite is the Turkey Bam & Cheese omelet, while mine is the Garden Veggie one. We get both with our frozen food order, so we trade off. Instead of Mimosas, make fancy glasses of sparkling water with just a splash of fresh squeezed OJ for a low-cal cocktail and enjoy breakfast in bed!

Spicy Kung Pao Noodles for Lunch

Kung Pao Noodles

Spice things up for lunch with Nutrisystem’s new Kung Pao Noodles! I like to make a side of steamed baby bok choy with just a tiny bit of hoisin sauce and crushed peanuts on top to make the meal feel extra special. Using chopsticks is fun and helps you to eat more slowly, too.

Comfort Food for Dinner

For most men, one sure way to win their heart is with good old-fashioned comfort food! The hubs is no exception, so I’m planning to make  Nutrisystem’s Chicken Pot Pie. I’m still trying to decide on the perfect side to go along with it so let me know if you have a suggestion. I’m thinking roasted brussels sprouts since we both love those, or maybe a fancy salad with strawberries and spinach.

Diet-Friendly Valentine’s Day Desserts

Enjoy a nice glass of Champagne with a decadent (but diet-friendly) Nutrisystem dessert like the Red Velvet Whoopie Pie, Chocolate Chip Cheesecake or Chocolate Covered Pretzels. Or make a romantic dessert to share. I found this recipe for Strawberries with Chocolate Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce from the Nutrisystem Recipe Center.

So, those are just a few suggestions for making Valentine’s Day special without wrecking your diet.  We wish you all a very happy day filled with lots of love!
