"date night" healthy dishes

hungryabbey | Jan 10, 2010 05:25 PM

So thank you all so much for helping me come up with ideas for all of my fun nutrition assignments this year (finally, we get to cook and not just draw organic chemistry molecules!!).
For my next assignment, I need some recipes (a complete menu) that is romantic, healthy, and most importantly LOOKS/TASTES restaurant quality.. but is not TOO difficult to make. I'm targeting young newlywed couples for a romantic meal that is "restaurant quality".
Another specification, I can easily "healthify" the main/side dishes/app, but the dessert is trickier. I need a beautifully presented dessert that fits with the theme of the rest of the meal but is not too high on sugar/fat. I'd prefer to not do a sorbet.. unless it can be seriously dressed up, sorbet/ice cream is always the cop out dessert IMO.
Thanks in advance!!
