Six Ideas for December

Donate to a food bank

At this time of year, it’s tempting to fill our shopping trollies to the brim with extra treats and lots of food to see us through the festive period. It’s estimated that we spend up to 16% more on food in December than the rest of the year. While you’re stocking up on advent calendars, cheese and wine, remember the people who are struggling to make ends meet, or provide any kind of Christmas celebration for their families.

Most supermarkets have a donation point for food bank items, which will be distributed to the members of the community most in need. For every shop you do throughout December, why not add an item or two to the pile. Pick non-perishable items that won’t spoil, and maybe think about the small luxuries that you enjoy at Christmas that might make someone else feel special.

About PlantBased

December has arrived! Anyone who loves their food has plenty to celebrate in this, the final month of the year, because sharing food with loved ones is part of what makes Christmas so special. However you spend the festive season, my guess is that it’s going to involve at least a little indulgence. Whether that means opening your advent calendar every morning to a small sweet treat, or planning the world’s biggest Christmas dinner, food is at the centre of so many of our festive celebrations. That’s why we wanted to make sure you don’t have to look too far for culinary inspiration; turn to page 22 for the start of our Christmas section. From Mince Pies (p.38) and the amazing Christmas Pudding Cake you can see on the cover (p.42), to a selection of cheeses and drinks, we have got you covered this month. We’re also taking a closer look CBD oil; chances are you’ve heard of it, but maybe you don’t know exactly what it is. We’ll talk you through it, and provide some recipe ideas for how to incorporate it into your daily diet. And we’re rounding out the recipes with some sweet and savoury puddings, and winter family favourites that will warm the bellies of everyone around the dinner table this December. Sending all the very best festive wishes from us all at PlantBased; we’ll see you in 2020!
