A very vegan Christmas?

Monday, November 19, 2012

This year will be my first meatless Christmas. I'm determined to make it 100% vegan but that becomes increasingly difficult when you're planning a family lunch with all omnivores. So what do I do? I mean, it's their Christmas too and they're looking forward to a great Christmas feast. Including dead animal flesh.

So do I make my own food and let them prepare what they want, knowing only I will eat the vegan stuff? Do I insist on making at least some parts vegan only - surely they can accept vegan plum pudding? Do I skip traditional food and aim for lots of salads and appetizers instead of a great nut roast and hope that pleases?

I don't really know how to handle this. And it's the first of many. Anyone got ideas or experiences with this?

I would do a combination, make some things expecting it to be just yourself eating it, have some side dishes that are vegan and definitely switch out the plum pudding for vegan (and don't tell them, bet they won't notice ;)). Let them sort their meat etc. I bet some will try the vegan goodies without a second thought.

I reckon that's spot on what I will do Megs.
