Main St., Quincy salt, like fruits, vegetables and other fresh foods. You can also leave added salt out of recipes like casseroles and stews. Eat smaller portions. Use a smaller plate to trick yourself into thinking you have consumed more. Share a meal with your sweetheart, so you don't overeat. Don't deprive yourself. If you receive a box of choco- lates, don't deny yourself a sweet treat. Take it slow and enjoy in moderation. Allot yourself one piece each day or every other day. Give a healthy gift Make a homemade valen- tine. Write a love note or compose a poem. This gift is personal and has more per- manence than sweet treats. Spend time with each other. Instead of swapping a box of chocolates, do an activity together. Get your heart pumping with activi- ties such as ice skating, hiking or gathering wood for a romantic fire. Consider a date to a local cooking class. Relax. Go get a "his and hers" massage. This can relieve stress and lower blood pressure. Make a modern "mix tape." Surprise your sweetheart with a workout playlist on his or her mp3 player.
