Merry Christmas to you all! I wish you the very best, lovely food and stressless holidays with your loved ones! I hope you’ll all have a great time ♥
For the very first time I am gonna host the Christmas dinner, so believe me, I am super excited! Excited, happy and anxious at the same time. Normally I am kind of confident with my kitchen skills, but when suddenly the whole Christmas dinner is depending on me, I start to doubt myself. Not to mention the pressure, that I wanna serve a vegan dinner for people who are….hmmm….let’s call meat-friendly. But my lovely boyfriend says it is gonna be okay, so I try not to worry.
Since we are all busy and focusing on the big dinner, it is easy to forget to eat. Or it well. So I thought you could use a quick and easy salad recipe, which is very-very filling, so it will give you energy for the whole day. You can make a huge portion and keep it in the fridge, and eat the next day too! So please don’t forget to eat regularly and try to keep the stress levels low! I wish you a very happy Christmas!
