With Christmas just around the corner, we’re bracing ourselves for a little holiday entertaining stress—including what to serve our guests. Enter The Meatless Farm Co.—a plant-based brand looking to help Canadians reduce meat consumption in an environmentally friendly and healthy way this holiday season. The Meatless Farm products are 100 per cent plant-based and made using the highest-quality, non-GMO ingredients available. Using its signature ground product, The Meatless Farm has created a “chili non-carne” holiday survival kit; try making it at home using the recipe below, and see if you can "fool" family and friends (and please those who don’t eat meat, to boot)! —Vita Daily
