Vegan Thanksgiving!

Vegan Thanksgiving meal ideas & recipies!
Thanksgiving is about giving thanks not murder!

Did you know that more than 300 million turkeys are slaughtered for meat every year?1 That's about one bird per American. They are hatched in incubators and never meet their mothers or live in nests, but are raised instead in huge windowless sheds called grow houses where they never see the sun. Factory farmers cut part of the birds' beaks and toes off, without anesthetic, and genetically breed them to grow so fast that often their legs actually break under their ballooning weight, and many young birds die from heart attacks because of the physical strain. Hopefully, the cruelty forced on innocent birds is enough to turn you off of turkey flesh for good. Here are some Thanksgiving vegan ideas!

Adopt a turkey!

Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary's annual Adopt-A-Turkey Project has rescued over one thousand turkeys from a thankless fate at the dinner table and given thousands of people an opportunity to adopt a turkey for the holidays.

I'm making a dish from a cookbook for this year that includes both tofu and seitan - so you can get your white and dark meat, cruelty free!
