Last Minute Vegan Thanksgiving Ideas

On my way to the supermarket, I realized Thanksgiving is this Thursday. Somehow it went from being this abstract holiday in the semi-near future to being something I needed to actually buy groceries for. Yikes!

Fortunately (?), I plan to spend the holiday alone for the first time ever, so there is no pressure to pander to the tastebuds of the masses. I just get to eat some of my favorite foods while re-watching every episode of Freaks and Geeks. Yay!

Here's what I hope to eat. If I make even half of this I'll be happy!
  • Field Roast brand Celebration Roast: I don't wanna talk smack about Tofurky, but this is my favorite turkey alternative. It doesn't taste at all like turkey, but it doesn't even need to try to. I like to always have at least one in the freezer. It's that good! I like to serve it with golden gravy from Vegan Vittles cookbook.
  • Holiday Kale Salad via Better Homes and Gardens or, more likely, a simple raw marinated greens salad
  • Butternut Squash and Macaroni Casserole: I love this!!!!
  • Whole Foods Market brand Organic Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce, in a can: Perched on the end of the aisle, it was a total impulse item that reminded me of my childhood. Ha ha! Let's ignore the BPA for now. It's not like I never eat canned food anyhow. #RealTalk
  • Whole Foods Market brand Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies: Straight from the box and oh-so-yummy! My new favorite seasonal snack.
What will you eat for Thanksgiving? I hope compassion is on the menu!

If you have $30 to spare please Adopt a Turkey from Farm Sanctuary. You aren't expected to take a critter home with you (although turkeys are so loveable you might want to). You just make a one-time donation to the non-profit org and support their advocacy work for farmed animals.
