12 days of vegmas

Hi guys, this is the first of my Christmas Vegmas posts. Although 12 Days of Vegmas doesn’t officially begin until tomorrow, I realised I hadn’t properly introduced the series. So, that’s what I’m doing today. This post is going to be short and sweet (short in my world usually ends up at 1200 words still so we’ll see). Today I’m going to explain why this is taking place in November, not December and give a brief overview of what to expect in the coming posts.  

November?  

The answer to this is very simple, December is too late. This series is going to be everything you need to be vegan at Christmas. Part of that is how to be prepared. Telling you to be prepared and only sharing that tip in December is a bit too contradictory for my liking. It’s also going to be full of tips for those of you who have a vegan in your life and want to know what to make for them/ buy them and anything you can do to help them.  

Tomorrow’s post is one of the main reasons I’m starting this in November. Vegmas day 1 is How to Survive Your First Vegan Christmas. It’s all about how to get yourself prepared and how the non-vegans can accommodate their vegan family and friends. Essentially, it’s everything I did right in year one and everything Iearnt from my mistakes in year one. This will be my 4th vegan Christmas and I’d like to think I’ve got enough information by now to be able to help others. 

Content  

As I’ve been planning this series, I’ve been thinking about it in two halves.  

Part 1  

You already know what day 1 is and the next few posts are going to follow up from that. Days 2, 3 and 4 are all going to be recipes I’ve tried and tested over the years from other people. A round-up of things I like that I think you should try, per se.  

Part 1 will also include some other tips for the non-vegans and vegans alike, depending on whether you’re buying gifts or shopping for yourself. This series is mainly going to be about food, of course, but I’m doing a post dedicated to vegan and cruelty free beauty brands. More so for those wanting to buy gifts and not wanting to accidentally get the wrong thing. There will also be a round up of the best vegan chocolate. 

Part 2 

Part 2 is where I get more creative. I’ll be sharing lots of my own recipes, everything from snacks, sides, and desserts, to my own vegan Christmas roast. I’ve been working on building a vegan hamper for a while now, which I cannot wait to share. Consider that one a gift guide of foodie things to buy the vegan in your life. There’ll also be a vegan Christmas cocktails post thrown in for that week too.  

Basically, you can take away from this that I’m going to be doing a lot of eating and drinking and having the audacity to call it work.  

I’ve been planning Vegmas for what feels like forever now. I wanted to do something like this last year, but I only started blogging last September and didn’t quite feel ready enough to take on the commitment and do a series like this justice. Hopefully, I can deliver this year and make it as good as I’ve imagined it. Which post are you most excited for? 

Until tomorrow, happy Vegmas!

  1. Oooh I’m really looking forward to your Vegmas post! Even though I am not vegan, I want to adopt more of a vegetarian/vegan diet to my everyday life… Even through small things like meat-free-Mondays. Good luck on your series!

  2. I’m not a vegan myself but all these posts you have planned sound amazing and I cannot wait to read them especially the vegan cocktails!

  3. You know I actually find it quite baffling but I am not actually friends in real life with any vegans. I know of some vegans and am friends with a few veggies or DF/GF people but no one that’s vegan. Despite this, I am actually really damn interested in what you have coming up as I’d eventually love to start transitioning to veganism or at least have vegan days of the week/months or trying more alternatives. You are by far one of the best vegan food bloggers I know so I’m sure you’ll do this a lot of justice and I can’t WAIT to see the hamper post!

  4. This is such a great idea for anyone having their first Vegan Christmas or who want to start transitioning. As I’m sure when you’re in the first stages of going Vegan, Christmas could potentially be a challenging time of year. Especially with other people who aren’t Vegan! xxx

  5. What a great idea for a Christmas series! There’s no doubt a lot of people will find your posts extremely useful. I love your recipes so I’m excited to see all of those!

  6. Ooh I can’t wait to read all your Vegmas recipes, definitely looking forward to it! I am not a vegan but I would like to incorporate a few vegan recipes to my diet to try it out and then hopefully completely change my diet! Ahh can’t wait to read the next few posts!

  7. I’m not vegan but I am wanting to change my diet and eat way less meat than what I’m currently doing, this sounds fab for those who are experiencing Christmas for the first time as a vegan!

  8. Can’t wait to read this series will definitely be following. Not a vegan myself but my cousin is and will be coming over for present exchange and food so will definitely use some of your recipes and gift guide tips. Look forward to reading more!!

  9. Ooh this’ll be interesting to keep an eye out for! I stopped eating meat in January but am still eating fish at the moment. I can be a fussy eater so still not sure if I’ll ever be able to move right over to being full veggie or vegan. However, many a time I’ve gone for the veggie or vegan option when eating at a restaurant and they’re always lovely! Looking forward to seeing what’s in the hamper

  10. I think it’s cool that you’re doing 12 days of Vegmas! I like that this starts a couple of days before Thanksgiving. I LOVE reading about your vegan recipes. You share delicious recipes that are healthy and delicious. Looking forward to read more about Vegmas!
