Ok, so you want to do a raw plant-based Christmas...
...but how do you create a full day of delicious indulgence?…
…we’re talking from the moment you wake up and open your stocking to that last little treat before bed...
- make it something the whole family will LOVE without turning Christmas into a refined sugar battle ground
- without spending hours on recipes that don't taste good that you’ve grabbed from what feels like 101 blogs, aren’t tested properly so you get mixed results
- without wasting money on ‘must-have’ ingredients that you just don’t use.
Without proper planning at Christmas, food can become a very expensive affair!
Well, think of me as your raw food Santa
Ok so this is Rudolph...
I’m going to show you how to go from this...
So you can have your Christmas raw and plant-based for under £50
Without getting up at 5am to stuff a turkey
Without peeling a single spud or top and tailing a single damn Brussel sprout
Everyone remembers the food at Christmas,
Whilst you will quickly forget the pair of socks your auntie sent you or the soap from your next-door neighbour (sorry Sally),
You never forget the food at Christmas
Take my first effort at a raw food Christmas
It was shocking
Nothing particularly special about that (!)
Now, if you’re reading this, you’ve probably already resigned yourself to a similar fate
But that’s where I come in
Let me take you through your deliciously raw food Christmas
On Christmas eve, after an evening of carolling with your hands wrapped around an almond milk eggnog ..(yes all raw and made by you) and some Christmas cookies
You can wake up refreshed on Christmas morning to open your stocking and eat the satsuma…
…leisurely enjoy a warming overnight Christmas porridge with some raw gingerbread butter stirred through and a winter fruit salad…
(yes that’s right), you’ve made it the night before so there’s no fuss…
After you’ve ripped open your presents and the kids have dressed the dog as a reindeer,
Mid-morning you can put your feet up after a winter walk with a clementine and cinnamon hot chocolate and salted caramel bars.
An hour in the kitchen at most and lunch is served.
After your post lunch walk, you can present a spiced apple tartlet served with a pumpkin spiced latte.
In the evening, it's party time. Parsnip crisps and fermented chilli salsa, mini peppers stuffed macadamia cheese and more.. even trifle and a slice of raw Black Forest gateau.
