It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and although you may want to show someone special that you love them, you may also want to skip all the sugar. Yes, Cupid, you can celebrate Valentine’s Day without all the candy.

Here’s how:

Now you can see that with a little planning and a bit of creativity, you can have a very sweet Valentine’s Day — no candy in sight! Well, at least until you ask your sweetie to give you some sugar.
