Sweet Valentine's Day ideas without breaking the resolutions

See also

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and you don't want to be the one to blame for your significant other breaking the New Years fitness resolutions. That means no candy and no luscious dinners out, right? So what can you do to make Valentine's Day special this year?

If you really must give the traditional box of chocolates, there are always the healthier organic and vegan chocolates. But some couples are opting for a healthy vegan meal at one of Houston's vegan restaurants such as Green Seed, Pepper Tree, Pat Greer's, or Loving Hut. Many of the dishes are so good that vegans have claimed their carnivore friends love joining them from time to time. And vegan cuisine offers some pretty nice vegan versions of desserts too, such as cheesecake, banana cake, and carrot cake.

After a romantic vegan dinner, a night of dancing is sure to get the pulse racing. First you can dance a fast, fun jitterbug or you can move into a slow, intoxicating waltz but whatever you choose, you're spending fun time together and that's what matters. Some couples are even choosing to give dance lesson gift certificates to their valentine.

And what about the gift of relaxed tranquility by relieving stress, anxiety and tension through a luxurious massage? A couples massage such as those offered at Beyond Beaute or Zalia Massage offer another healthy Valentine's Day gift idea.

Happy Valentine's Day!
