Healthy Valentine’s Day Recipes for the Perfect Date Night In

The best healthy Valentine’s Day Recipes for the perfect date night in or girl’s night! From breakfast in bed to delicious dinners and incredible desserts.

Who else remembers Valentine’s Day back in school with foldable Valentine’s, candy, and boxes to fill with all of your friends? Best. Day. EVER! I’m here to bring those dreams back but instead of Disney Princess cards and heart candies that say “txt me” we’re cooking up the best healthy Valentine’s Day recipes for the perfect date night in or girl’s night!

I picked out some delicious breakfast ideas to get the love rolling right in the morning. Enjoy a little breakfast in bed with your hunny or kick off a day of self-love with a fluffy stack of pancakes. Extra chocolate chips? You know how I do.

Plan a fun girl’s night with some of the best apps & salads that are great for a group or just for two. For the main event enjoy a little healthy comfort food with tons of vegetarian options that anyone will love. No Valentine’s Day is complete without chocolate, so scroll on through to the desserts section for some incredible baked goods and plenty of melty chocolate goodness. Maybe we should all just have chocolate for dinner – no judgment here.
