My sister-in-law is a raw vegan and I'm stumped when it comes to including her in holiday meals. Any suggestions on holiday, raw vegan food?

Because rice and beans is, in my opinion, a staple of a whole-foods vegan diet, I'd like to share with my homies another variation that, while not Megan-simple, is still delicious and will still please everyone — and it also happens to be pretty healthy. So here we have: Rainbow Brite rice and beans.
I have to have protein or I get cranky and tired. It seems the best non-meat protein option is the musical fruit… beans. After doing some research I heard that a natural cure for gas is cumin seeds. So I got to work on a recipe that incorporated cumin with the beans to come up with a dish that had fewer musical side-effects.
I recently joined (and subsequently deleted my account from) a vegetarian networking website. What I got was more of an anti-meat-eater coalition. Now, don't get me wrong: there were some very kind people there, but the general attitude was aggressive. What I really just want is a supportive network for vegetarians, with little-to-no negativity. Has anyone heard of something like that?
I hated being vegan for a long time, because I was missing out on bacon cheeseburgers. So I would waiver back and forth, until the day I figured I could just make anything and everything vegan. Bacon, cheese, hamburgers, all vegan-izeable. I was not a prisoner to my healthy conscious and did not have to live in it's dark deprived shadows.
I am vegan, and my girlfriend is not. We are looking to move in together, and I had always had this (now unrealistic) idea that my home would be a vegan one.
How have other veggies and meat=eaters gotten along, and what are some tips for making everyone happy food wise?
