‘Tis the season to celebrate! Few things in life are as intimate or memorable as sharing a meal with loved ones. Many North American holiday traditions centre on food and beverage: Christmas dinner, leaving out milk and cookies for Santa, and popping bubbly on New Year’s Eve, just to name a few. Isn’t it incredible how food brings people together and punctuates life’s special moments?
Regardless of your lifestyle or dietary philosophy, indulging is practically inevitable. Depending on your outlook, you are either a) looking forward to treating yourself here and there during the upcoming weeks, or b) feeling a little bit anxious about deviating from your normal eating habits. Regardless of which camp you’re in, we encourage you to focus on moderation and balance.
In an effort to help you stay balanced in your nutrition and eating habits this holiday season, we have created a delicious and healthy dinner menu using recipes created by our Ambassadors! Here is a vegetarian holiday feast you can feel great about enjoying on Christmas or New Year’s Eve – or any time, really.
