                   "If grass can grow through cement, love can find you anywhere."

Do you know the history of St. Valentine's Day?

In 5th Century Rome, mid-February was traditionally the time of the Lupercian festival, an ode to the God of fertility and a celebration of sensual pleasure, a time to meet and court a prospective mate.

Valentine Candles But in 496 AD, Pope Gelasius outlawed the festival, choosing instead a "lovers" saint to replace Lupercus. The martyred Bishop Valentine was chosen as the patron saint of the new festival. Before his death, Saint Valentine had signed his final note to his true love, "From Your Valentine," a phrase that has lasted through the centuries. Eventually the concept of celebrating true love became known as Valentine's Day.

In modern times the most common gesture has been for the gentleman to bring his lady flowers and sugary chocolates. Well, the sugary part may be "out" for us low-carbers, but the fun of the holiday doesn't have to be... From beautiful flowers, to elegant meals, to romantic travel plans, make sure Valentine's Day remains special to you. This issue will have some recipes and tips to help you out!
