If you read my earlier post Vegan Chocolate Valentine’s Gifts, you know I got my hubby chocolates for Valentine’s Day. I slipped on our Plant-Strong Diet with that one, but it was just a little white slip. I swear! Okay, I admit it wasn’t the healthiest choice, but armed with these 10 awesome Valentine salad, dinner, drink and dessert recipes I’m gonna make the rest of our V-day super healthy. Here’s what I found:
1. My Heart Beets for You Salad
My Heart Beets for You Salad is a fun recipe for Valentine’s Day. It is visually appealing and offers some vegetables that might not show up on the table on a regular basis.
2. Cheery Cherry Kale Salad
This Cheery Cherry Kale Salad is my favorite salad and it would be lovely for a Valentine’s Day meal. If you can’t find fresh cherry’s, dried are a fine replacement.
3. An Avocado Valentine
This Avocado Valentine is (surprise, surprise) the creation of the wife of a California avocado farmer. Isn’t this fun?
4. Vegan Valentine Bento Box
Send someone special to work or school with this lovely Vegan Valentine Bento Box.
5. Hearty Ravioli
This Hearty Ravioli (hearty – hehe) is a low-fat, healthy but oh-so-romantic dish to serve for Valentine’s Day.
6. Valentine’s Veggie Pot Pie
If the weather’s cold on Valentine’s Day, comfort your sweetheart with this Valentine’s Veggie Pot Pie.
7. Pomegranate Heart Ice Cubes
Pomegranate Heart Ice Cubes are a cool way to turn a drink into a special Valentine’s Day treat.
8. Fudge Cherry Bursts
Who says being healthy means you have to skimp on a Valentine’s Day dessert? You don’t if you make these amazing raw Fudge Cherry Bursts.
9. Raw Carrot Cake and Cream Cheese Hearts
I love these sugar and gluten-free Raw Carrot Cake and Cream Cheese Hearts (vegan cream cheese, of course!) from An Unrefined Vegan.
10. Red Velvet Brownies
Or maybe your sweetheart would prefer Red Velvet Brownies for a Valentine’s Day dessert.
11. Raw White Chocolate & Strawberry Marbled ‘Ice Cream’ Cake
I know I said this was a top 10 list, but I ran across this luscious Marbled ‘Ice Cream’ Cake and had to add it to my round up (I rarely follow the rules anyway – hehe).
Wishing you all a happy Valentine’s Day!
