Vegan Holiday Hacks
When the days start getting shorter, and the temperatures start to drop, it is nice to have a nice warm mug in your hands. Hot beverages are a large part of that cozy feeling in cold weather. Many of the popular coffee house drinks are not vegan, but you should not have to miss out on these treats when the chill hits the air. That is why we have collected this list of vegan hot beverages for cold weather. Whether you need to cozy up with a book and a blanket, or you are having a family get together for the holidays, this list will have the hot beverages that you need.
Would you like to impress a new vegan sweetie with a dinner at home, but don’t have the time (or the skills) to make it happen?

It starts with an appetizer of pesto sauce (there are some great vegan varieties in the pasta aisle; if you can’t find it, you can easily make your own) with fresh baguette and baby carrots.
Your entrée is vegan ravioli (that you don’t make, of course), topped by marinara sauce and a sprinkling of vegan cheese. The green on the plate is courtesy of asparagus — AKA a vegetable that doesn’t have to be chopped. more→
