This Valentine’s Day, Love is in the Fare!
Everyone knows that being humane and healthy is hot, so this Valentine’s Day, treat your sweetie to a romantic dinner packed full of animal-friendly aphrodisiacs. Vegan aphrodisiacs—from chocolate and strawberries to tomatoes and peppers—are famous for their reputed carnal qualities, but did you know that there’s a scientific reason that meat-free fare is the recipe for romance? The cholesterol and fat in animal foods slow the flow of blood to all a man’s vital organs—not just his heart—but healthy vegan foods will leave lovers full of energy and vitality.
So turn up the heat in and out of the kitchen with these arousing recipes:
