You and your sweetheart might be looking to avoid the Valentine's Day traditional sweets for something healthier.
Here are some ideas for you:
Dark chocolate is great for people watching their waistlines, who may also have a sweet tooth. It's tasty and healthy.
Dietitians recommend dark chocolate drizzled fruit, like chocolate covered strawberries.
"You're getting the benefits of dark chocolate as well as the vitamin C, the B vitamins, and the dietary fiber from the strawberries, which would be a great substitution as well," said Amy Jamieson, Cleveland Clinic.
Jamieson also recommends almonds, nuts, walnuts and cashews dipped in dark chocolate.
She says they're great heart healthy choices.
But remember, eating any type of sweet in moderation is key.
