You deserve to sit back and relax this weekend – particularly with your significant other. Studies show that spending quality time with loved ones can have some serious health benefits, including increased longevity and a lower stress. Not only that, laughing and smiling with your favorite people is seriously relaxing and can set a tone of happiness for the whole week through.
Tonight, spend some beautiful quality time with your significant other and cook a meal together. Creating a meal side by side is a great mechanism for bonding, an inexpensive way to enjoy each other’s company, and can seriously improve your cooking skills. It’s also a blast – not only do you get to cook together, but you get to eat your masterpiece together, too!
Of course, not all of us have the benefit of master chef skills at our disposal. Even if you aren’t the best cook in the world, we promise that cooking together will be a fun way to learn a few extra talents. Instead of trying to create a delicious meal from scratch, however, begin your journey with a recipe. Food bloggers from around the blogosphere have created a wide variety of recipes for you to choose from. Using the internet also allows you to search for recipes that take dietary preferences into account. Whether you and your significant other are vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, or simply prefer to eat particular ingredients, chances are there are hundreds of food bloggers out there who have created and tested a recipe that’s perfect for you.
We’ve decided to jumpstart your search by putting together a few healthy, veggie-filled recipes to help you and your partner feel good. They’re all simple, perfect for two, and chock full of vitamins and nutrients to jumpstart your week of healthy eating down the right path. And of course, they’re absolutely delicious!
