In this month's magazine, Canadian Living has asked six well-known health-conscious Canadians for their most loving recipes. The result is a delicious, tasty and heartfelt gathering of Valentine temptations that you can feel good about surrendering to. From chef Stephen Wong comes a succulent and refreshing Chicken and Prawn with Tomato Kumquat Salsa. A traditional Hungarian "special occasion" dish of pork, onions, garlic and spices called Tokáy is near and dear to Olympians Tamas and Attila Buday. Tofu is tops with Dr. David Jenkins, a professor of medicine and nutritional sciences at the University of Toronto and St. Michael's Hospital. Try his Tofu Coffee Pudding for a heart-healthy sweet ending. Pastry expert Gail Hall lightens up on the fat with her Meringue Hearts with Almond Cream Cheese. Or if chocolate is what you're craving this Valentine's try Registered Dietitian Leslie Beck's Chocolate Fondue for Two. Paired with fresh fruit that's packed with vitamins and antioxidants it's a match made in heaven.
