Veganism is a lifestyle that seeks to exclude the consumption of animal products or byproducts. It is often considered a way of living, rather than a diet, based on ethics.
Plant-based is more flexible and nutrition-based. It is simply the intention to eat less animal products and more whole and minimally-processed foods. It is a good option for people who want to tap into the many health benefits of a plant-based diet without feeling they have to restrict themselves too much or make any major life changes. Start with making plants the star of the show and animal-based products the sidekicks.
With the holiday season upon us, get a head start on the new year starting with a plant-forward holiday feast that will impress everyone—vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike.
Create a whole feast from the recipes above or just swap one of your more meaty dishes for a plant-based option! We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by their decadence. Deck the halls and Fa-la-la-fel! Happy holidays from the Meal Hero team.
