Feeling the Love on Valentine’s Day – Tips for Celebrating Solo

You may not have a date on Valentine’s Day, at least in the traditional sense. But there’s no reason to feel down about it. Recent events have created solidarity in going solo and besides, who says this heart-shaped holiday is exclusively for couples? Valentine’s Day offers a chance to celebrate the things that nourish you, delight you and keep you well. This year, we invite you to cultivate pure love within and let it shine.



With a clear social schedule, you have an opportunity to strengthen your connection to self. Here, we’ll explore a simple method you can use to tap in and keep that good thing going year-round. After all, self-love is a verb.

Single or coupled, you have everything needed to create wellness and fulfillment in your daily life. What are some of the moments you reflect on in the car or as you wake up on a quiet morning? Name a solo activity that always makes you happy but hasn’t come up in a while. It could be riding your bike along a country road, cooking a wholesome meal for one or doing full eye makeup and taking selfies. As you file through the moments you’ve enjoyed in the past, commit to reenacting one every day until new feel-good experiences unfold. Put some activities on repeat and allow others to light the way to self-discovery.

If you’re into this idea, you might be thinking a special day is unnecessary to celebrate self-love. We couldn’t agree more, but a reminder doesn’t hurt! Open your calendar and mark February 14th as the day to rekindle a flame that still burns for you.



All good times come with good food, or is it the other way around? In any case, it’s a great idea to line up a few meals, snacks and treats to highlight the authentic moments spent on your own.

Probiotic foods have a swoon-worthy taste and texture, and because Nancy’s products contain billions of live probiotics from clinically documented strains, they support your overall health and resilience. Studies show that adding live probiotics to a balanced diet can help regulate your mood and promote mindfulness, which is the gateway to wellness and fulfillment. In advance of the holiday, stock up on a few Nancy’s products and try four of our favorite recipes for one:

  1. Heat up your heart with a warm, comforting breakfast made with Nancy’s Organic Lowfat Cottage Cheese: Soft Scrambled Eggs and Roasted Asparagus
  2. Lean in for lunch or a delicious dinner, subtly spiced and sauced with Nancy’s Organic Lowfat Yogurt: Roasted Winter Veggie Bowl
  3. Pick up a plant-based snack made with Nancy’s Oatmilk Non-dairy yogurt. Hello, lover: Creamy Masala Hummus and Pita
  4. Grab a spoon and dip into a decadent dessert made with Nancy’s Organic Cream Cheese: Mini Chocolate Mousse Cups


True love starts with you and the way you experience authenticity in the moment. Now that you know where to look, you can always find peaceful reflection, simple joy and a little something good to eat.

Happy Valentine’s Day! With love,
