Valentine’s Day Vegan Lasagna

My husband and I always opt for a cozy dinner at home to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We both really enjoy this holiday, but also strive to take time every day to celebrate love of all kinds. We plan our menu weeks in advance, find a few decorations, and look forward to sharing in this special dinner in our own home. This year, we will be having vegan and gluten-free lasagna. I am already looking forward to it!

Holiday Recipes: Vegan Waffles with Cranberry Chutney for Cozy Mornings

Breakfast is quite possibly my favorite meal of the day. I enjoy the calm and peacefulness of the early morning hours. It is a time of the day in which I enjoy writing, and feel creatively inspired. I often wake before the sun rises, and like to ease into the day. While we have our usual go-to breakfasts, it’s also fun to venture outside of those from time to time. For us, this usually means waffles.

Holiday Recipes: A Vegan, Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Pie the Whole Family Can Enjoy

Sweet potatoes are delicious, versatile, and align very well with the fall season. They are very soothing to the digestive system, especially when cooked with ginger. We include ginger in this recipe for this reason. Sweet potatoes are high in fiber and antioxidants, providing amazing benefits to gut health. I try to have ginger in some form every day, as it has incredible medicinal properties. Ginger helps with nausea, indigestion, boosts immunity, to name a few of its healing properties.

Holiday Recipes: Make This Lentil Loaf the Centerpiece of Your Next Gathering

Our lentil loaf recipe is one of our first choices as the weather cools and we usher in Autumn and Winter. We prepare this dish for gatherings with family and friends, special occasions, and to enjoy this meal together as a family. Last weekend, we had family in town for the first time in a long time. The weather was crisp, leaves on the ground, and as my husband and I sat down to plan our meals, this was my first idea.
