5 Healthy and Organic Tips for Valentines Day

Share |

Most of our holiday traditions revolve around food. We have Thanksgiving feasts and we gorge on cookies, cakes and pies during the holiday season. Halloween and Easter revolve around pillowcases and baskets full of unhealthy treats. Birthday celebrations are an excuse to indulge in that extra piece of cake and Valentine’s Day you shower your love with chocolate candies.

This February 14th, show your Valentine that you truly care about them (and the Earth) by giving them a healthy and organic gift.

  1. Say “I Love You” with a Healthy Dinner for Two—Whip up a nutritious pasta dish using whole wheat pasta, and pair it with a salad using fresh, organic veggies. www.localharvest.org is a great site to locate locally grown, organic produce in your area. Don’t forget to enjoy your dinner with a glass of organic wine!
  2. Send Organic Flowers—Check out this site full of beautiful organic flowers. http://www.organicbouquet.com.
  3. Organic Fruit Baskets—Send natural sweetness their way with an organic fruit basket from www.freshfruitbasket.org.
  4. Organic Chocolates—You can’t celebrate Valentine’s Day without a few pieces of chocolate. So, if you must indulge, choose chocolates that are made from organic ingredients, like Equal Exchange and Sweet Earth Chocolates.
  5. Rejuvenate in Good Conscience—Treat your loved one to a day of Earth-friendly pampering. You can reduce your environmental footprint while getting a foot rub (massage, facial, salt scrub…). Search www.greenspanetwork.org for a green spa in your area.

Money Can’t Buy You Love—Who says that you have to spend lots of money to show someone you care? Shower your partner with hugs and kisses and a homemade card (on recycled paper, of course). Sometimes the sweetest things don’t have to cost a dime!
