Heather Mills has already shared some tips for enjoying the holiday season without meat and dairy in Veggie Vision’s Guide for enjoying a vegetarian Christmas. Now, she’s advising any vegetarian or vegan to take matters into their own hands when visiting relatives who eat meat. Bring your own and don’t bother arguing about values this time. Stuff your face with good food instead!
“The best thing you can do is bring an amazing dish to the party – such as a vegan dessert or yummy things that people will try,” Mills said. “It’s best not to get into a heavy conversation around the dinner table about your choice. Just say “you live your life, and I live mine, but if you want to have a serious discussion about it, let’s have it another day”. The best way to convert people is by bringing great-tasting food and by looking fit and healthy.”
When a site like Vegetarians In Paradise has recommendations for every major holiday of the year, you don’t even have to bother searching for recipes.
The Dreaming of a White Christmas menu gives recipes for dishes like vegan Holiday Snow Quiche with Broccoli Garlic Sauce, Steamed Green beans with Water Chestnuts and Winter Wonderland Coconut Pie with Raspberry Sauce or Sugar-Plum Spiced Nuts for desserts.
And if you’re celebrating another holiday during this time of year, like Kwanzaa, there’s advice here too. You may be tempted to double holiday dip and celebrate twice in December with African peanut stew, pumpkin soup and mustard greens with tempeh bacon.
For New Year’s ideas, Halloween, Mother’s Day and even Cinco de Mayo, visit Vegetarians In Paradise.
