Indulge in a Heart-Healthy Valentine's Day!

At FunnySpoon, we keep things SIMPLE. So for Valentine's Day we're going to kill three birds with one stone: indulge in delicious dishes, stick to our New Year's resolution of eating healthy, and celebrate National Heart Health Month. Sound impossible? It's easy with our SIMPLE recommendations below!

SIMPLE recipes

Whether you're cooking for that special someone or having friends over for a singles night, this menu is sure to win hearts!

  • Shrimp Diavolo: In just 20 minutes, you'll have a restaurant-quality meal in the coziness of your own home. Plus you'll get 1 of your 2 recommended servings of seafood for the week - packed with heart-healthy omega-3's!

  • Italian Artichoke Salad: An easy side salad that squeezes some greens into dinner (your heart with thank you!) but won't leave embarassing bits in your teeth.

  • Sweetheart Cupcakes: They're just as tasty as they look but not nearly as bad for you as you'd think - just replace the vegetable oil with heart-healthy olive oil and you're actually doing something good for yourself!

Top it all off with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon from our obsession-of-the-moment, Mad Housewife Wine, and you'll be helping fend off heart attacks. Who wouldn't fall in love with that?
