My mom went out and bought me a bunch of vegan food I could make on Thanksgiving-she's pretty supportive of my vegan lifestyle. She loves buying me the tofurkey roasts and some of the meatless ground beef so she went nuts in the store with all the soy products. For Thanksgiving breakfast I had tofu scramble, that was a store bought Amy's Organic dish. I had that with a bagel and some Earth Balance butter, some veggie dumplings and some delish hot chocolate that I made with So Delicious coconut milk, cocoa and brown sugar. Dinner was a tofurkey roast, cranberries, a sweet potato and roasted veggies with So Delicious ice cream for dessert. I upgraded my phone on Friday so I have no pictures of this awesome food on my new phone. So, head to my Instagram to see pics of everything I've eaten...at my time lol
I went shopping with my mom on Black Friday and of course our last stop was a vegan bakery. Cupcakes Heaven in Delaware sells vegan cakes and cupcakes and I stopped for a 6 pack of cupcakes. Those are all over my IG too but I do have pictures of them on my phone. Is there anything better than a cupcake with tea?
There was one additional person at Thanksgiving dinner who did not eat meat and she tried my tofurkey and loved it. No one made me feel weird for eating the tofurkey roast and the people around the table were supportive and accepting. When someone asks you why you don't eat meat, remember why you started this lifestyle. Tell them the reasons and explain how normal it is. You can describe your favorite food or recipe and tell them why it's so yummy.We were all carnivores before we became vegan and so we know how easy it is to eat meat. So, being patient and explaining to meat eaters why you changed to a veg lifestyle is important if you want to spread the word kindly about veganism. The last thing we want is for vegans to get a bad name because we are judgmental or harsh. We were all not vegan before we were vegan.
Friday night I missed my usual nana ice cream and fruit. I froze some bananas and I had frozen fruit already in my fridge so I made a berry nana ice cream treat and it hit the spot. I can't go long without nana ice cream. After I eat alot of cooked foods, I start craving raw foods and I just can't wait to get my hands on some berries or a banana or apple.
How was your Thanksgiving? What vegan dish did you make?
