It’s December, so Christmas is on the radar, and one of the best things about the holiday season is of course the food. Whether its mince pies, Christmas pudding or your mum’s favourite holiday treat, it is a time when we indulge in special delights. It’s never too early to start thinking of recipes, especially if you’re going for a traditional spread. Here are a couple full meal plans and recipes: some with a British twist from the BBC and others with an Australian flair from Taste.  For those who prefer to stay away from animal products, there are loads of vegan holiday recipes here from VegKitchen. We wish you all many joyous holiday meals with family and friends this season, waistlines be damned.
