Christmas Eve Dinner

For dinner on Christmas Eve I prepared two patches of soup: Spicy Soyrizo Chili and Vegetable and Ravioli Soup with cornbread muffins.  I ate a bowl of chili with oyster soup crackers and a dish of unsweetened apple sauce on the side.

Christmas Morning

Breakfast on Christmas morning consisted of two vegan Chocolate Zucchini Muffins from The Happy Herbivore and a bowl of Greek vanilla yogurt with fresh raspberries and blackberries.

These muffins were good and definitely received rave reviews from everyone in my family.

Christmas Lunch

For lunch I ate a bowl of the Vegetable and Ravioli soup that I prepared the night before with whole grain saltine crackers.  I also cooked some green peas to eat on the side.  Its was the perfect sized lunch to eat before our Christmas dinner.

Christmas Dinner

My Christmas dinner plate was filled with vegetarian Quorn Turk’y Roast with vegetarian brown gravy, green bean casserole, cheesy potato casserole (made with cream of celery soup), fruit salad, and wheat rolls.  I absolutely went back for seconds, too! :)

This was the first time that I had eaten the Quorn Turk’y Roast and I was very pleased.  Many of my family members tried it, and we all agreed that it most definitely tasted like turkey.  Had somebody told me that it was the “real thing” I would have likely believed them.  I would definitely buy this product again for future holidays.

Christmas Desserts

Christmas would not be Christmas without indulging in a few sweets, including…

      Yes, it is the one time when I definitely feel the need to majorly splurge! I just cannot resist those yummy desserts! Funny thing is…I actually ate way less than I normally would have, but was totally satisfied. I call that a win-win.

      Hope you had a great Christmas! :)
