Chocolate Covered Bacon

Hands down..THIS is my go-to site for living clean, healthy, and happy – check out:  HealthyLivingHowTo.com

 

Chocolate covered bacon might sound crazy but, the salty, sweet goodness will surprise you!  Plus, you are getting protein and the antioxidant benefit of dark chocolate!

Filet Mignon

Every Valentine's Day needs a savory dinner to look forward to.  This recipe includes lean, high-quality protein with a little a personal favorite of mine - whipped cauliflower rather than potato.


  The crusted bleu cheese topping provides a little guilty pleasure that every Kosamie deserves!

 

 

 

 

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

If you promise yourself to get to Kosama a few extra times this week, then you have earned this sweet treat.  And hey...it's not so bad as far as calories go. Plus, the strawberries are high in fiber and support our antioxidant rich theme.

Filling and Fitting for a Valentines Day to remember!
