Holiday Alternatives: Plant-Based and Vegan

The holidays are full of heartwarming and rich foods that indulge our senses and excite our taste buds. It’s a time where we gather with loved ones, share in the season’s collective merriment, and reflect on the things we are grateful for. Delicious food is the centrepiece that elevates our spirits and gives us energy to bring into the new year. No matter what your dietary needs are, we have everything you need to join in on the festivities.
