This Thanksgiving was unlike any other. This was the first Thanksgiving that I celebrated as a vegan. It has been almost a year since I embraced the vegan way of life, and it has truly been a phenomenal experience. I am educating myself more than ever on what it truly means to be vegan and learning more and more about vegan food, dangerous factory farming, and I especially enjoy creating vegan recipes!
My Thanksgiving meal consisted of a lot of delicious steamed veggies, and roasted Tofurky, a product I enjoy using in many of my recipes. I truly had a nutritious, colorful plate! I am thankful for so many things: my wonderful family, my health and my faith are just a few.
This holiday weekend, I have been able to reflect on my vegan journey, and I am thankful that I am healthier and not participating in the harming of animals that suffer extreme violence in slaughterhouses and factory farming across the nation.
I made a delicious veggie bowl with the Thanksgiving leftovers. It consisted of wild rice, black beans, sweet potatoes, green beans, broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms, red onions, steamed kale, and Tofurky.
I am proof that healthy eating doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. You can create great vegan meals using 10 ingredients or less just like all of the vegan recipes listed on this site. You can make everything from vegan desserts to vegan pizza!
I am looking forward to posting some great vegan holiday recipes throughout the month of December!
