It’s no secret that food is love. Serve up a little of both this Valentine’s Day with one of these dozen healthy recipes. We’ve got options for whatever time of day you and your loved ones can get in the kitchen.

Breakfasts

Valentine’s falls on a Tuesday this year, so plan ahead and get one of these healthy breakfasts prepped the night before.

Snacks

Congregate around the kitchen table with these finger food favorites. Get the kids in the kitchen to help chop, measure, and make it a team effort.

Dinners

Let the love fest continue through dinnertime. These recipes are just as easy to make for a crowd as they are for a romantic evening for 2. Pack leftovers for lunch the following day.
