“People who love to eat are always the best people” – Julia Child

Have you seen truer words spoken? But for real, I’m one of those people who are on the fence of loathing Valentine’s day but also kinda loving it. It’s nice to show the people you love how much you care for them. Since forever, food has been something people give to show their appreciation for one another. Whether a special someone is in your life at the moment or not, there’s nothing wrong with showing family and friends some love (with delicious food of course!)

Cooking a homecooked meal for Valentine’s Day is a great option because you skip out on the crowd’s at restaurants. These vegan Valentine’s Day recipes are all simple to make, yet feel indulgent. Plus there’s plenty of amazing dessert options including plenty of chocolate šŸ™‚
