Celebrate kindness this Christmas

November 21st, 2018

Christmas in New Zealand is unique. Think soaking up the sun in the backyard or heading to the beach with family and friends. A Kiwi Christmas is about spending time with people you love while sharing laughs and making memories. All while enjoying delicious food!

Although Christmas is traditionally a time for peace and love, it’s a different story for some of our four-legged and feathered friends. More animals are eaten around Christmas than any other time of the year and most of them will suffer in cruel factory farms before their lives are ended.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO THE LIVES OF ANIMALS by celebrating kindness this Christmas! Choose vibrant and delicious, plant-rich foods to share with your friends and family. This year, we’ve teamed up with some of the most fantastic plant-based foodies the country has to offer! With mouth-watering recipes such as Mushroom Wellington with Hazelnut Stuffing, a Pesto Potato Salad, Smoke and Fire Whipped Tofu Dip to Vegan Pavlovas, Salted Nut Butter Bites and Raspberry Nice-Cream! We’ve got all you’ll need to ensure this kind Christmas is the best one yet.

It’s a perfect time to create new traditions and try scrumptious new foods but if you love your old faves a few swaps can make them animal-friendly. Love trifle? Try using plant-milk in your custard or making your own vegan sponge cake for the filling. Even kind pavlova is possible with chickpea brine AKA aquafaba, is a miracle worker and whips up a treat to create beautiful stiff peaks. Just try googling your faves and put the word ‘vegan’ in front of it!

Not only have we got you covered for food ideas but we’ve also created gorgeous gift tags so you can give the gift of kindness to others! These adorable little tags come in a sheet of 4 and are yours when you order our Vegetarian Starter Guide.

Have a Kind Christmas!
