Stay in for V-Day this year and make a healthy body, happy heart menu for your loved one(s). I LOVE this menu because it combines some of my favorite things: lentils, vegan aioli, roasted mushrooms, quinoa, garlic, and cocoa. (Not all in the same dish, but conveniently spread out over three courses.)
You're looking at about an hour of prep time, total, which means more time to hang with people you like. And also more time to drink wine, which is not officially included in this menu, but highly recommended (if it's your thing).
Here are the recipes in the menu above with an individual link to each. Want to swap something out? Check out the tabs under 'Recipes' above to search for your favorites: I recently broke 'Desserts' out into their own category, so take a peek through there for sure. Everything is sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free, as always, but decadent enough that you won't notice a difference. #score.
However you celebrate on the 14th - or however you choose not to - show your body some love with foods you know will let you feel fantastic.
