Holiday Cooking For Special Diets

Meshing together different dietary needs at the Thanksgiving table certainly poses some challenges. A few of my family members are vegan, and some of the tips I've gleaned over the years include the necessity of preparing dishes ahead of time when someone else is hosting (they likely won't appreciate extra cooks in the kitchen), and transporting items in containers like these 2-1 large containers for both hot and cold items, are a lifesaver. If celebrating the holidays away from home, try searching the area for local speciality markets or vegan restaurants that offer plant-free holiday dinners. The Whole Foods near me offers a vegan holiday meal for 2 ($39.95) and Veggie Grill Restaurant offers a holiday feast that feeds 4 to 5 people ($69.95).

With the holidays looming ahead, I am always on the lookout for vegan-friendly holiday recipes. Fortunately, San Jose Public Library can help with finding just the right vegan and vegetarian cookbooks to make your holidays less stressful. Additionally, some of the titles are offered in ebook format which is helpful if you are on the go.
