It’s Netflix and Chill and you really want to impress that other half with all your moves. What are you going to do? You got the date and the wine and the show picked out–now all you need are some delicious snacks on the table. This way whether you’re watching hot and heavy or light and comedic, there’ll never be a dull moment.

A little anxious? Don’t worry, we got you covered. Just because you’re spending time cuddling up on the couch doesn’t mean the pickings have to break your fitness routine. Here are five gorgeously flavorful snack ideas that are not only dressed to impress, but delicious, healthy, and nutrition-conscious too.

First up, if you crave the crunch, you (and your date) will fall in love with our Sweet Chili Almonds. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and fiber, the nutty, savory flavor of almonds is heightened by using organic, raw honey. A little kick of heat and we’re in guilt-free, naturally sweetened heaven. The best part is you can take the leftovers with you the next time you head to the gym as a home-made alternative to trail mixes or sprinkle it on top of cottage cheese for a protein power breakfast.

If you’re looking for some creamy guac to seal the deal, our guacamole recipe is simple but full of goodness. A blend of spices you probably never thought of adding makes it extra special so be sure to read on. Using celery sticks instead of a carb-loaded tortilla or pita chips will make sure the ketonians don’t fall out of their groove.

A spicy, crunchy chickpea recipe followed by a divine southwest salmon salad is essential for those protein gains. For dessert, dark chocolate covered bananas and pineapples or some dried fruits are a great way to satisfy that sweet-tooth while keeping your weight loss goals on track. Feel free to add swirls of peanut butter (or almond butter for the Paleo conscious) for extra heart-healthy decadence.

Excited? So are we. We hope you enjoy the recipes below, and if they’re everything you hoped they would be, drop a comment and let us know.

Whether you really like more Netflix and less chilling, OR less Netflix and more chilling, there’s nothing like spending time with someone special and watching a movie or your favorite show.

Here are some heart-healthier snacks you both can enjoy that won’t have you regretting what you ate later on.
