Christmas is a time for everyone, and the humble Christmas dinner is no exception. With the number of vegans in the UK rising from 150,000 to 600,000 in the last eight years, it’s more important than ever to have meat alternatives on the Christmas dinner table.

By eating plant-based Christmas meals, the amount of air miles needed to create the dishes would be reduced by 22%, thus helping our planet. So, by swapping just half of our Christmas dinner dishes for vegan options, we could be making a huge impact on the climate change crisis. There are many benefits to turning our Christmas dinner green but finding plant-based Christmas alternatives doesn’t have to be a challenge or sacrifice taste.

At the Show, make sure to visit our Christmas Kitchen, where nutritionist Eva Humphries will be showing exhibitors the Christmas dinner worthy plant-based dishes of your dreams. Making a nut roast is the easy option, but Eva is here to show you that there are many other equally tasty, easy and gorgeous options this Christmas season. Not only are her dishes delicious, nutritious and positively Christmas, but they’re also entirely plant-based.

Take a walk through the Artisan Producers Market, and grab all your fresh ingredients to make the perfect plant-based Christmas dishes you could ask for. Visit Riverford Organic Farmers at stand F560 for your locally-sourced, hand grown ingredients, that will upgrade your homemade dishes, and leave your Christmas guests gobsmacked at your culinary masterpieces. Or take a look at &POCA’s range of chilli jams, that will compliment your plant-based dishes like no other.

By making these small, green changes, we can work together to help keep our planet greener for longer.
