Valentine’s Day is a bit like Marmite – you either love it or hate it! I fall firmly into the ‘love it’ camp and am fully committed to the whole hearts, flowers and three-course dinner experience. The only thing I don’t like about Valentine’s Day is that all the restaurants are packed out with other loved-up couples doing exactly the same thing.

Cooking at home is the perfect solution. What could be better than a lovingly prepared, private dinner for two, in the comfort of your own home? It’s also much easier to create a menu that’s tasty and healthy at home, where you’re in control of all the ingredients – plus you’re guaranteed the very best table in the house!

The really lovely news is that we’ve made it easy to enjoy a slimming-friendly three-course meal that feels deliciously indulgent.

If you want to take a speedy shortcut to the heart via your loved one’s stomach, we’ve put together the perfect Valentine’s Day menu. (And if you want to point a wannabe masterchef to some slimming-friendly options, just send them this post).

Slimming World Valentine’s menu

Quick tip: All recipes (apart from chipotle steak) serve 4 – so just halve the ingredients for a romantic dinner à deux.

Lip-smacking starters

Sticky chicken 

Pile this Chinese-style chicken onto steamed pak choi for a finger-lickingly fantastic starter.
