Compassion and Joy for the Holidays

The holidays are a wonderful time to spread the message of compassion, along with holiday cheer to our family, friends, and work colleagues.  From potluck dishes to “Secret Santa” gifts, we can demonstrate that vegan choices are more delicious, more festive and more fun!

Your holiday shopping is a great time to support your local vegan stores, bakeries and restaurants:

Get your vegan field roast for your holiday dinner, some gorgeous chocolates and all sorts of other treats at Karmavore.

Karmavore: The Vegan Store is located at 610 Columbia Street in New Westminster- 604-527-4212.  According to their website “[They] are an independent 100% vegan owned & operated variety shop, featuring a retail store with a natural grocery, deli and bakery, as well as a unique collection of eco-friendly shoes, cosmetics, cookbooks, personal care items, and much more!”

All sorts of fashion forward stocking stuffers and gifts can be found at Nice Shoes.

Nice Shoes is located at 3568 Fraser Street in Vancouver – 604-558-3000.  “Nice Shoes is Vancouver’s only vegan shoe store located conveniently on Fraser Street & 19th Avenue. We carry a wide selection animal friendly brands. We also carry purses, bags belts, wallets, guitar straps and more.”

If you don’t have time for seasonal baking try Edible Flours, Sprout Vegan Bakery or Fairy Cakes for your vegan holiday goodies.

Celebrate the season with friends and family at your favorite vegan restaurants. There are so many wonderful choices in Vancouver and beyond.  Check out some of the choices at the Happy Cow: The Healthy Eating Guide or Earthsave’s Vegetarian Directory.

We hope these tips help make it easy to have a festive and compassionate holiday season!

Happy Holidays from everyone at Liberation BC!
