I know it’s the morning of Valentines so you’re probably wondering how I have a picture of my dinner already. Well I prepared this meal over the weekend to celebrate early. I find that I have more time on the weekends to plan and prepare a romantic meal so I make the holiday on the most convenient day for me. Thus I served this a couple nights ago. We had a fillet Mignon, king crab legs, grilled artichokes, baked sweet potato and for dessert the Lemon-Raspberry Triffle which I will post later. So obviously this is my cheat day. Even with all this food I was able to keep my day under 2000 calories mostly because of portion control. I had one crab leg, a 4 oz fillet, 1 artichoke and 1 small sweet potato. The dessert was around 250 calories which is high for me but I wasn’t able to even finish it. I love that with a little planning I can make an incredible meal like this and eat it guilt free.
What are you planning for your Valentines Dinner?
