Never heard of Galentine’s Day? Traditionally celebrated on February 13th, Galentine’s Day is a term coined by Amy Pohler’s character on Parks & Recreation, and is a day to celebrate female friendship. This Galentine’s Day, we recommend you grab your best girlfriends and celebrate in one of these healthy ways.
Have a Spa Day
Head to the spa for some much-needed pampering with your friends. Outside your budget? Try some DIY Spa tricks to create your own oasis at home.
Take a Healthy Cooking Class
Learn a new recipe and gain some new skills in the kitchen by taking a healthy cooking class with your friends.
Treat Yo’ Self
Been eyeing a new pair of tights or jeans? Go shopping this Galentine’s Day and give yourself a little retail therapy. Window shopping works, too.
Make a Healthy Brunch
Girl’s Night Out
Did you know dancing for 30 minutes burns over 200 calories? Grab your girls and head out dancing to get a workout that doesn’t feel like work.
Take an Aerial Yoga Class
Step outside of your comfort zone and head to an aerial yoga class. The antigravity flow will help you feel playful and allow you to get more deeply into the stretches.
It’s almost unavoidable: chocolate hearts, candy kisses and a bounty of not-so-healthy treats from your sweetheart. Registered Dietician Danielle Omar is back to let us know the healthiest and unhealthiest treat options for this Valentine’s Day so you can steer your loved one in the right direction.
Danielle loves the combination of dark chocolate and warming spices in this drink mix! She does warn us that, although made with organic ingredients, the main ingredients are still sugar, so to indulge mindfully.
