As an Atheist, I suppose I am guilty of wanting to have my cake and eat it too, as I simply cannot deny myself the joys of Christmas (really, who wants to have cake that they aren't allowed to eat anyway?).
The decorations, food, presents, family, friends and general spirit of celebration are the finest way to unwind at the end of each year. Yes, I am a vegetarian, so turkey and ham are out, but Sanitarium make this truly delish vegie roast thingy that I deny myself all year, in order to keep it as my special Christmas meal (#nerd). But I digress.
Christmas dinner photos!

|My quinoa salad: cooked/cooled quinoa, baby spinach leaves, parsley leaves, rocket, raisins, raw almonds, finely chopped preserved lemons, lemon juice and a little dash of olive oil. So yummy!|
