The nights are getting darker earlier, the weather has definitely taken a turn for the chillier – there’s no denying it… Christmas is on its way! To make the day itself as stress-free as possible, the key is careful planning, so this issue we get you started with a selection of delicious festive recipes, from chestnut strudels for the main event to delicious sweet treats like our no-nut gingerbread cheesecake cover star and indulgent Boxing Day brunch ideas.
Also this issue, Katy Beskow proves that Christmas doesn’t have to break the bank with her top tips for hosting it on a budget, plus we show you how to whip up some edible gifts that friends and family will love. Dreading those awkward conversations about veganism that inevitably come up at parties and family gatherings? We share the secret to managing them with ease.
If you’re really not ready to give into the festive feeling yet, we have plenty to inspire you, from tasty midweek meals you can whip up in under 30 minutes, to Italian dishes direct from the family archives.
We also explore how environmentally sustainable your vegan diet is, share tips on managing your blood sugar and take a look at the topic of antibiotic resistance. Plus we have the final part in our Women On the Frontline of Animal Advocacy series – this time looking at three remarkable ladies who have dedicated their lives to primates.
Find all this and much more in the November issue of Vegan Food & Living.
