As a teenager, I looked forward to Valentine’s Day, because on that day in Bucharest a romantic atmosphere was installing and in each station I was seeing people with flowers in their hands. Like any developing woman, I was expecting a gift or a flower that would have roved the existing love in my relationship. Years passed, and I stopped expecting this seemingly special day, because I understood that love is not represented by gestures made once a year, but by daily actions.
I definitely like flowers and I am happy when I receive any, but I stopped believing that my special one has the absolute duty to give them to me on Valentine’s Day, just because I am a woman. We see women all over the world who say that they don’t need men, and that they want equal treatment and rights, but when it comes to holidays, they are the ones who believe that men owe them something. I also believe in equality of the sexes, so I think if we expect to get something, we also have to offer and show initiative.
You are not in a relationship? Find the courage to buy your own flowers or anything you want, because no one will love you more than you do.
This year I will publish two recipes for Valentine’s Day, that you can make either for a romantic dinner or for yourself, because love of any kind deserves to be celebrated. The recipe that I propose in this article is very simple and requires only 4 ingredients and a silicone mould. If you like dark chocolate, then I’m sure that you’ll love this recipe. You will end up with some delicious chocolate candy, but it will be sugar free and vegan. If you have diabetes, a vegan diet, or you are lactose intolerant, you will still be able to enjoy it.
One chocolate heart will have 48kcal, 3.8g of fat, 3g of carbs and 0.9g of protein!
