Thanksgiving Tips & Inspiration

At Thanksgiving, those choosing to eat compassionately are sometimes accused of “breaking tradition” for not eating turkeys. This reaction may be a result of placing more emphasis on old traditions than on the values of justice and compassion. Happily, we can eat in such a way that reflects our values and honors tradition at the same time.

In her short inspirational video, Vegan Thanksgiving, renowned author and creator of 30DayVeganChallenge.com Colleen Patrick-Goudreau reminds us of the true meaning of this holiday -- gratitude, community, seasonal abundance, and generosity. She provides practical tips for reflecting these values in the foods you choose.

Check out Colleen's recommendations for creating a beautiful main dish, delicious side dishes, and scrumptious desserts that contain all the flavor and texture of familiar favorites while staying true to your values and kind to animals.
