No doubt the McCartney household's Christmas dinner was a healthy extravaganza made up of the best dishes vegan cuisine has to offer.
Though the singer has admitted that he and his late wife Linda McCartney it was sometimes difficult to keep with tradition by going meat-free.
'We were like, you know, wait a minute, what can we do for Christmas? I wanted to be able do things, like traditional father things,' he told BBC Radio 4 in 2013. 'So at Christmas I wanted to carve something. We didn't have a turkey, we didn't have a roast, we invented stuff.'

'Linda invented a macaroni turkey, it was like a macaroni cheese and we let it go cold and then you pull it out, heat it up, and I would slice it.
Sir Paul added: 'We had some pretty goofy things. It was good fun. It was great. We enjoyed it and it tasted good. It allowed us to enjoy the whole thing rather than think, "Oh we're vegetarians now, our life has ended".'

Before he met Linda, McCartney did eat meat and one time The Beatles ate horse for Christmas.
During their final residence at the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany, the band dined at the city's British seaman's mission with The Dominoes.
John Frankland of The Dominoes said: 'We ate steaks and we found out later that they were horse steaks. We'd eaten a horse for Christmas.'
