As my husband and I work to get fit, we’ve also been trying to find fun and healthy date ideas.

Instead of heading out for a calorie-packed dinner on the weekend, we’ll hit the gym and make a fresh meal together at home. I know what you’re thinking, how is that any different than any other day?!

Small changes can make this seemingly regular activity feel more like a fun date.

First, we’ll do our circuits together at the gym. We often get separated during our boot camp style workouts but if we’ve declared it a “date workout” we’ll do our best to stay together.

Secondly, we prepare a meal that’s different and unique but low calorie.

For this date meal, we created an eye-catching salad with edible flowers! Here’s how to make yours:

  1. Slice fresh green Granny Smith apples
  2. Add a sprinkle of feta cheese, and dried cranberries
  3. Add a simple vinaigrette dressing or olive oil
  4. Toss everything together
  5. Finish with edible flowers

Pretty, delicious, and healthy. The perfect combination for a fit date!

Instead of having plain water, we paired our salad with Aquafina Sparkling water (available at Target). It’s flavorful, bubbly and also 0 calories, 0 sugar, and 0 artificial flavors. It comes in an 8 pack now so you can also enjoy it more often (it’s also 25% off any Aquafina Sparkling 8pk flavor from 5/21 – 6/17!).

Since it’s fizzy, it is fun to serve it in champagne or wine glasses.

You can even add fruit or flowers to each glass to really elevate the presentation.

I should also mention that it’s easy to pair sparkling water with any meal since there are 4 Aquafina flavor options (including 2 new ones: Mango Pineapple and Black Cherry Dragonfruit).

You can visit select Targets to sample the flavors before planning your fit date. Although, I do feel like all of the flavors can pair well with a wide variety of fresh foods.

I’m so glad that Aquafina has refreshing sparkling water that fits into our new healthy lifestyle!
