Healthy Valentine's Day Alternative Snacks, Recipe of the Month, February 2019

Easy and satisfying sweet suggestions from Joy Bauer (Nutritionist and featured regularly on the Today show):

1. Chocolate chip-stuffed raspberries

Instead of gobbling down a few chocolate candies with fruity fillings, enjoy 10 chocolate chip-stuffed raspberries for only 35 calories (double the portion and more than quadruple the nutrition). Simply stuff each raspberry with one semi-sweet or dark chocolate chip (flat part outside) — it's that easy. Bonus: These bites are scrumptious, adorable and pack fiber and antioxidants.
