Holidays can be one of the most difficult times for new vegans, especially when around non-vegan family. Given that food is such a cornerstone of our social interactions and traditions, making changes in your eating habits can be incredibly intimidating. But the change doesn’t have to be so extreme–you don’t have to give up your favorite meals to eat cruelty-free. To show you just how abundant your Thanksgiving can be, I’ve brought in a team of culinary specialists to share with you some delicious vegan thanksgiving recipes. It’s time for an epically ethical Thanksgiving dinner!
Here at Bite Size Vegan, I tend to focus on the why of being vegan, speaking to the ethical and moral basis for a vegan lifestyle and encouraging people to make the connection between the food on their plate and the individuals from which it originated. But equally important is the “how” of being vegan because you can make the connection and decide to never eat at the expense of another being again, but strong ethics and morals won’t make you a sandwich. (Trust me…I’ve tried.)
And if you know me, you’re familiar with my serious lack of culinary skills. So I’ve teamed up with eight incredibly kitchen-adept vegan YouTubers to bring you the “how to” of an epically ethical Thanksgiving dinner. Check out the video for this post to get all the info you need to make your own epic Thanksgiving spread.
