Love and Chocolate: A Recipe

Dr. Jen Landa and HusbandOne of the most important things I’ve ever learned about building a successful relationship is that if I want my husband to feel loved and appreciated, I have to speak his language – not mine.

It’s natural for me to express my love with words, because that’s what makes me feel good.

But if I really want to show my hubby, Adam, how much I love him, I’ll do something like turn on his bedside lamp and turn down the corner of the bedsheet for him before he gets into bed.

A very small gesture, but it makes him feel valued, loved, and appreciated. Just like a few kind words from him can put a smile on my face for the rest of the day.

This morning, wanting to do something extra special for Adam, I surprised him with this romantic (and healthy!) smoothie recipe I made up (we drink a healthy smoothie before and after our morning workout).

Romantic Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie

Directions: Place all ingredients except one strawberry and nibs in high speed blender and mix well on a high setting. Pour smoothie into your prettiest glasses, garnishing with remaining strawberry and cocoa nibs. Cheers!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Dr. Jen
