When you are planning a romantic picnic with your significant other, you might want to choose some extra special things to bring, but still, remain healthy and fit within your diet. This is definitely possible! Here are some ideas to help get you started.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
This is the ultimate ‘healthy’ dessert since you really do have control over how much sugar and chocolate you choose to use. The strawberries of course are healthy, with lots of different nutrients and vitamins. With the chocolate, you can use regular milk chocolate that is melted or go with more dark chocolate for extra antioxidants. You can also just dip a little bit of the strawberry if you want to reduce the calories even more. Once you dip your strawberries in the chocolate, set them on some parchment paper as they won’t stick to it. Let them cool until the chocolate hardens, and they’re ready to go! romantic picnic
Prepare a Charcuterie Plate
This is a fun way to set up for a picnic with just a little more preparation. You need a tray to be used as the charcuterie plate, which should hold different food items like meats, cheeses, fruits, and garnishes of your choosing. You can bring the ingredients in containers, pack a small tray or plate in the picnic basket, then put it all together when you arrive at your picnic destination. This brings a typical picnic up a few levels, and when combined with champagne or wine, can really turn it into a romantic and healthy picnic for you and your significant other. romantic picnic
Use Champagne Flutes For Water
If you don’t want to drink champagne and have the added calories for your romantic picnic, you don’t have to! Instead, bring along some champagne flutes, but pour sparkling water in them instead. You can use plain sparkling water or flavored. Either way, you go, it will have a crisp taste and some bubbles in your glass, which helps tremendously when you want to have a special outing with your loved one, but you don’t want to have an alcoholic beverage or something high in fat and calories. romantic picnic
