Traditional Holiday Dinner Recipes For Plant-

Based Eaters

Written by: Joanne Beccarelli

The holidays are often a dilemma to newly converted plant-based eaters. This is especially true when you will be in mixed company where family traditions and food memories pull you towards your old ways. However, there are plenty of ways to step forward by remaking some of your favorites or embracing some new ideas that will fit nicely on any table, even tables where omnivores and plant-based eaters celebrate together.

Make any of these appetizers, main courses/sides and desserts this season; they are delicious and substantial enough to make plant-based an easy choice. Plus, they will work well with any other standards that others contribute to the meal.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
