Every day of the year is opportunity to give from your heart and share love, but sometimes those marker days are an added bonus reminder to turn up the gratitude meter. As we approach Valentine’s Day, which many people enjoy celebrating, you might be thinking of ways to indulge your loved ones, and maybe even yourself, with some of the chocolate love this day has become synonymous with for many. And if you happen to also be vegan, there is no longer any reason you can’t enjoy all the chocolate bliss along with others, while also supporting the environment, animals, and your own health and well-being with pure, organic, cruelty-free ingredients. My friend Celeste has a great vegan blog called “Honk If You’re Vegan” (where she blogs about all things vegan from recipes to reviews, ramblings, health and nutrition) and she shared this “yummy” post on Vegan Chocolate Valentine’s Gifts I hope you’ll enjoy. She provides several great gift options at affordable prices. They all look amazing! Some other options, which also include some raw vegan chocolate, include (but not limited to): Coracao Confections , Sacred Chocolate , Lulu’s Chocolate , or perhaps your own basket mix of scrumptious chocolate bars from Righteously Raw Chocolate , or the amazing Kate Magic’s Raw Living assortment of ethical, high-vibe chocolate (which I just got to sample when she brought me some from the UK). However you choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day, or (like me) any day you would like an infusion of decadent pleasure, you can enjoy your chocolates without compromise and with a lot of intentional love. Enjoy!!
My husband and I cheated on our plant-strong diet too much over the holidays, mostly on sugar. We’ve been back on track since New Year’s, however; so I decided to treat my hubby with chocolate for Valentine’s Day. An occasional indulgence (as long as it’s really occasional!) ain’t gonna kill him. Here’s some goodies I’m considering:
1. Vanilla Kissed Strawberry Bark
A hint of vanilla mingles with fruity strawberries and smooth dark chocolate in this romantic, gluten-free bark. This would be a thrifty choice at $15.00 from Allison’s Gourmet.
2. Lagusta’s Luscious Small Assorted Collection
A fabulous selection of 100% fair trade, organic and vegan truffles, bonbons, caramels and toffee. This looks like a great pick, and I love that the company combines a deep commitment to social justice, environmentalism and animal rights with an obsessive commitment to artisan techniques of a chocolatier. $32.00 from Lagusta’s Luscious.
