Happy V-Day, my friends!
Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite days of the year. An entire day devoted to indulgences, treats and sweets of all kinds - what's not to love? Little gifts, love notes, romantic dinners out (or in!) and, of course, a decadent dessert. When it comes to healthy eating, however, days like this can be tricky. Food is an important part of holidays and we all want to feel like we’ve indulged in something special, but there’s a fine line between indulgence and overindulgence.
