What is a vegan diet? Veganism is both the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. A follower of either the diet or the philosophy is known as a vegan. Plant based diets are not only animal friendly, but also are more sustainable for the planet.

While we are not a vegan family, we try to have several meat free and animal product free meals per week. While I do have good friends that are Vegan and Vegetarian, I’ve found that many people are just like us and are always looking for fun recipes that have less meat and dairy products.

Our daughter is actually allergic to dairy.  It was scary to start eating dairy free, but we found after a while that it really wasn’t too difficult and there are so many delicious alternatives to cheese, yogurt, butter, and milk.  We had already been doing “Meatless Monday” dinners and once we went dairy free we have really found that we often eat like vegans several days a week. While I will probably never turn down a little bite of turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, I will probably fill most of my plate with vegan friendly options.

What is really awesome about this list is that many of these items are simply vegan by default.  This is not a list of weird ‘Tofu-rkey”  that the non vegans at the gathering will feel the need to turn their nose up at. I mean, some people can just enjoy a gathering and not criticize food, but we all know someone who just cannot pass up the chance to mock something different…. amirite? Anyway, this is a big long list of delicious and I bet even the non vegans at the party will be making yummy noises!  Appetizers, soups, main dishes, side dishes, and so many desserts!  Every single one of them is plant based goodness!
