Vegan Food & Living – December 2019

Vegan Food & Living Magazine

What’s not to love about a holiday with the slogan ‘eat, drink and be merry? We’re encouraging you to do all three in abundance this Christmas with our fabulously festive issue. Impress your guests with gourmet-style dishes or rustle up some comforting classics that are guaranteed to please with our mouth-watering collection of festive recipes (P12). From wonderful wellingtons (P24) to show-stopping edible wreaths (P28), there are plenty of mains to choose from to prove to friends and family that sticking to a traditional turkey is so last decade!

Christmas is a time for giving, but for many of us the last thing we need is more stuff — particularly gift sets filled with plastic that we’ll never use (sorry grandma!). That’s why in this issue we’ve selected a range of experiences to gift your loved ones that you can enjoy together in our alternative gift guide (P30). If you’re anything like me, this time of year can be very draining indeed! With the cold weather, shorter days and festive planning, it’s easy to feel like you’re surviving rather than thriving. To help put the wind back in your sails, we’ve shared some advice on what to eat to help increase your energy levels naturally (P58) to give a much-needed boost this winter.

In 2020, we’re also encouraging everyone to do their bit to help make a positive impact on the world with our ‘Make a Difference Calender.’ Each month you’ll find five easy changes you can try to help make the world a better place. From all of us here at VFL, we wish you the happiest of Christmases and a very merry New Year.
