A few shots of what I made for a vegan Christmas this year! As a new vegan or someone who is moving to a more plant-focussed diet you might find Christmas to be a little difficult as there is a big change in the star 🌟of your plate, but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge a little (or a lot) and enjoy Christmas lunch with your loved ones🥰 My first Christmas as a vegan last year was a little depressing tbh! I didn’t get time to make any dishes and my extended fam was pretty new to the lifestyle so there weren’t any options for me. I felt like a bit of a burden! I wanted to connect with my family and enjoy their food, however I was not going to compromise on my beliefs or my ethics no matter what, so I dealt with it. This year I was a lot more prepared and made some things ahead of time, and froze them, like this cashew and stone fruit tart, this mushroom 🍄, beetroot and carrot 🥕Wellington (recipe courtesy of @thehappypear 🍐) and my Sensational Snickers form my Ebook 😇 I also made @avantgardevegan ‘s Donut Profiteroles from his Vegan Chrissy book! I love cooking for my family and I love showing them that Vegan food can be delicious and full of flavour, so I try to make vegan treats to take to any family gathering we might have 🙈 Vegan Ebook coming soon! Stay sexy and eat more plants 🌱🌱

Our first #FoodFriday choice for the 2020 is this dessert dish by @geephelps. This cashew and stone fruit tart is part of a set of several vegan dishes that @geephelps prepared for Christmas, using recipes by other great vegan foodies. We love it when the vegan community inspires one another with their creations!



@kitschykitchen presents our second Food Friday pick of the decade, a humble breakfast meal consisting of potatoes, chickpeas and homemade flatbread. Here at Vegan Culinary Cruises we love a hearty feast, but we also love smaller, more intimate vegan meals made from the heart.



Coming up next is @topknotchveganvittles’ delicious taco platter. These sumptuous shells look mouth-watering with their leafy fillings. The myriad choices of taco filling surrounding this plate completes the greatness of this vegan food photo. Life isn’t just like a box of chocolates, but also like a taco; you choose what you fill it with.



Pasta is always a treat and this creamy mushroom pasta by @veganswithvariety looks extra-tasty. We’re just loving the captivating textures of this vegan dish, and we can only imagine how it would melt in the mouth. Better yet, we can try making it ourselves, because @veganswithvariety’s Youtube channel has a video that can show us how to devise our own creamy mushroom delight.

#TBT IF YOU ARENT GOING TO HAVE AN OPEN MIND, DONT BE VEGAN / PLANTBASED 🚨 READ BELOW 🚨- – Veggie Soup 🤤 MAN y’all must not try if you think there’s no variety in being plant based 🤷🏽‍♂️ IDK what else to say. There’s OPTIONSSSSS you just have to put in a lil effort in the beginning. – ⏰ just like with anything, the beginning is always the toughest so go out there and GIVE IT A CHANCE. I hear so many people say “I went vegan then had chicken and stopped ever since” like WTF it’s all good to have a day here and there you don’t stick with it but my god lol why you gotta throw in the towel so quick. – Upgrade your mindset, try something new if you WANT, if not don’t complain about it and just continue to do what you been doing. – DONT GIVE UPPPPPPP – – – – – #alkalineaustin #beyourownbest #knowthyself #wfpb #wholefoods #vegan #veganforlife #veganfortheplanet #nomeat #plantbased #veganeats #veganforhealth #vegansofig #veganfortheanimals #healthylife #rawfood #veganfitness #veganAF #vegansofla #veganhottie #plantpowered #veganhealth #veganbody #plantbasednutrition #veganfitnessmodel #rawvegan #whatveganseat #lifestyle #vegansworldwide

Last but not least on our first Food Friday blog of the year is @alkalineaustin’s modest vegan soup. Paired with an inspirational text post, this soup is a great reminder how the vegan lifestyle is worth following. With easy to find ingredients and a relatively uncomplicated recipe, a vegan soup is a great meal to celebrate the new year as a vegan, a way to prepare for the new experiences ahead of us.

Wasn’t that fulfilling? We hope that our selection inspired you for the new year. See you all on the second #FoodFriday blog of the 2020’s next week. Do you want to celebrate vegan food with us?
