Dates are rarely the healthiest of occasions. Because let's be honest, who doesn't want to indulge in a few glasses of wine and some delicious tasting food to set the mood, right? "A healthy date" sounds almost like an oxymoron. The idea of eating a salad and drinking no alcohol or watching a movie without popcorn is enough to lead some to believe that the date is already going to be a boring one. But here's the thing, you don't have to limit date ideas to eating at restaurants and binge-watching shows on the couch on a night in. To inspire your next healthy date, we've come up with a few options for you. Trust us, the more creative you get, the more options you will have.
1. Go for an evening walk together
Yes, we know - it sounds like something an old married couple would do. But taking a walk together is actually a great way to catch up with each other and just talk, without any distractions. No phones, no endless discussions about where to eat, no arguments about what movie to watch - it's just the two of you, sans the extra pandemonium. Not to forget the biggest bonus in this date - all the calories you'll be burning! Plus, walking together in a park, surrounded by all the greenery can be pretty romantic.

2. Go grocery shopping
And perhaps pick up some fresh produce for your next home-cooked meal together. It's so much more fun than simply walking from aisle to aisle by yourself. Plus, it's a great way to find out about your tastes and what you each like to eat on a regular basis. Important stuff!
3. Hit the gym
There's nothing quite like breaking a sweat together to get your hearts racing faster - pun intended. There's something really sexy about stepping out of your comfort zones and doing something one of you or neither of you have ever done before. Plus, having a partner push you is all the motivation you need to perform better at the gym or elsewhere.
