Four Dishes for Valentine’s Day Dinners

Last week we shared perfectly sweet treats to share with your sweetheart. But now we’re looking at meals for tonight. If you’re still unsure what to make for dinner tonight, we have you covered!

We’re sticking to our guideline of being low in carbs, under four hundred calories and under 25 grams of fat. We want to ensure you can stick to your health goals while being romantic! Just because it’s a holiday doesn’t mean you should give up on your plans.



If you and your partner think of Italian food as a “love language,” this is the dish for you! Holidays are a great time to be adventurous. We’re betting most people haven’t tried the ultimate meat lover’s pizza. This low-carb pizza had a meat-based crust. It cuts out the carbs and is so good you’ll be thrilled you tried it! Valentine’s day is a good time to try new things! A serving has 334 calories, two grams of carbs, 0.5 grams of fiber and 23 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Prosciutto-wrapped Chicken Breast


Prosciutto makes any recipe fancier and more romantic. We don’t make the rules; we just follow them! While this goat cheese and sun-dried tomato-stuffed chicken looks and tastes amazing and fancy, it only has 15 minutes of prep time. That’s nice on Valentine’s Day when you want to enjoy your evening! You should brine your chicken in salt water for a couple of hours. While some say you need to do it overnight, a few hours is enough to make it extra juicy. A serving has 365 calories, 4.9 grams of carbs, 1.1 grams of fiber and 13.5 grams of fat. Get the recipe.    

Chicken Caprese


This simple, one-pan Italian-inspired chicken dish is guaranteed to be a hit! The salad’s classic tomatoes, basil, mozzarella and a balsamic glaze come together with chicken breast. The only special thing you need for this recipe is a skillet that can go in the oven. You start the dish on the stovetop and move it into the oven. It’s simple but tasty and colorful! A serving has 263 calories, 5.6 grams of carbs, 1.2 grams of fiber and 14.6 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Cauliflower Mushroom Risotto


Risotto is traditionally viewed as a romantic dish because it’s a labor of love. Cooking good risotto takes a lot of skill and patience. Not this version! It’s easy, and it’s fast! You’ll have a delicious dish on the table in 25 minutes. And, quite frankly, that’s something we love. While this recipe is a side dish, if you add some pan-cooked chicken, it will become a main dish. Or you could serve it with the prosciutto-wrapped chicken above! While the recipe calls for wine, if you don’t drink, you can replace it with chicken broth. A serving has 245 calories, 7.5 grams of carbs, 2.3 grams of fiber and 19.7 grams of fat. Get the recipe.  

We hope these recipes help you have a romantic dinner tonight or any other night of the year. Romance never goes amiss!
