A fresh look at Valentine’s day dinner: real food, real delicious, and easy to make. You can totally do this! Naturally pink bone broth soup, beet and kale flatbread, and chocolate avocado mouse with mixed berries. Free of gluten, dairy, and food comas
Pink greeting cards, candy hearts, and red boxes of chocolate.
That’s the normal shtick for valentine’s day, am I right?
But not tonight!
You’ve got your veggies and you’re ready to cook a true meal to celebrate.
There’s nothing worse than eating so much on valentines day that you don’t want to celebrate in a real way… dancing the night away and enjoying the company of your partner over a few glasses of wine.
No. A food coma is NOT what I picture.
So skip the heavy pasta with cream sauce and corn-syrup sweetened chocolates. Instead, try this super healthy, delicious, and pink meal.
