Last year was my first Thanksgiving without turkey. I had just gone veg, but not yet fully vegan, and because turkey was such a central part of the holidays, I was scared of “slipping” so I didn’t go anywhere that whole weekend.

I also preferred staying home and cooking delicious veg meals because I was newly awakened to the reality of animal cruelty in the meat industry that I just couldn’t bear being around the dead bodies of tortured animals, and people eating them.

As the holiday season is upon us, now is a good time to encourage friends and family to forego the turkey as part of the celebration of generosity, togetherness, and love. There are so many delicious alternatives to eating dead animals.

Be daring. Go vegan.
