         10-Gluten-Free-Valentine's-Treats-A Few-LOVEly-Affirmations-To-Live-By

It’s that Hallmark holiday called Valentine’s Day today and whether or not you have someone in your life that you love or not, it’s a great day to just simply celebrate YOU and the love you have for yourself because without self-love and self-care you cannot fully love someone else. If you have Celiac Disease or Lyme Disease or another autoimmune disorder, let it go and think positive thoughts. Affirmations are a fun way to add a touch of joy to your day. I never used them before- I was never spiritual…but recently I’ve been enjoying them- it’s like having a little friend to make you smile and keep you on your path to the greatest good for all.

As you go about your day, take a few minutes to pause and repeat one of the affirmations below…They’ll feel like you’re getting your very own Valentine and dozen roses and box of chocolate from your secret admirer.

Here are 10 yummy Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Valentine’s treats you can feel good about noshing on- no need for the box of chocolates when you’ve got these babies to whip up.
