Our Christmas Eve Menu - vegan and sugar free

In our fast-paced world, where ready-made meals often become the norm and even the seemingly healthiest options can contain hidden sugars, the movement for pure and vegan foods sometimes faces challenges. Many of us hardly have the time to study every ingredient list in the supermarket. Fortunately, it turns out that healthy and high-quality food is often cheaper than its processed counterparts and more nourishing as well. However, preparing these healthy dishes does require a certain amount of time, which is a worthwhile investment in our well-being.
