Vegan Thanksgiving

turkey-farm-sanctuary-537x359Thanksgiving can be a hard time for ethical vegans. 45-million turkeys will be killed to celebrate the year’s harvest, and it also marks the start of the holiday season. It’s a long stretch of time where we’re constantly put in tough situations, looking at that once-living-now-roasted holiday centerpiece. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, more than 67-million turkeys will be killed for food. It can be a really tough time of year for those of us who don’t think animals should die for food!

At Vegan GR, we show our friends and family that we eat great compassionate meals during the holiday season by bringing delicious dishes to all gatherings we’re invited to. Oftentimes, we get asked for the recipes or told that what we brought is better than the “real” version! Here are a few staples that have made it into our Thanksgiving routine.

    I totally understand the frustration of going to a party where you celebrate by eating meat. Personally, since I eat raw food, the smell of cooked meat is actually very unattractive, and going to a big party its always tricky. First, if you're friends are not on a raw food diet, you don't want to make it obvious that you are totally raw. Low-key is what works for me. I usually bring a dish or two to the party and eat that for most of the time. Some of my favourite foods to bring are a nice bowl of fruit salad, everyone loves fruit salad, especially when you have a good selection of fruit it looks good too. I also bring a kale salad as well, dressed with nuts, some cranberries, sliced apples, it looks terrific. Since it is Thanksgiving, I make my homemade hummus with some baked pita bits. Everyone loves it .
