What do vegans eat for Christmas dinner?

Good question! You can veganize any and all traditional holiday meals. Here are a few examples of what vegans eat for Christmas:

  • Holiday roasts made from seitan, nuts, legumes, tofu…etc. You can buy storebought roasts from vegan meat companies.
  • Side dishes made from veggies and legumes, without cheese, butter (and any other animal derived products).
  • Vegan desserts and cookies that are dairy-, egg-, and honey-free (and any other animal derived products).
  • Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks made with vegan alcohol (check on Barnivore.com!), fruit juices and syrups. Most fruit juices and syrups are vegan, but always check the ingredients. Some sugar brands are NOT vegan! Be careful.
