I know I’m totally getting down to the wire on this one, but if you’re anything like me, you haven’t quite put together what you’re contributing to your family’s get-together. Or maybe you’re doing it all yourself this year. Either way, you still have some choices to make!
I know I’m bringing the sweet potato dish this year, but I also need to bring a vegan main course and probably some vegan gravy. And probably one more side dish. I’m lucky because Chris’s sister is also vegan and there are a few vegetarians on his side of the family so I know there might be a few other things we can eat. Some of you might not be so lucky and planning out your vegan meal this Thanksgiving might be a little stressful (trust me- I’ve been there!). My advice to you is to just hang in there and be strong- when it’s all over and you see how awesome it is to eat an entire vegan Thanksgiving meal, you’re going to be so glad you did all that work. You should definitely check out Cadry’s Kitchen’s 12 Tips For Surviving Your First Vegan Thanksgiving as well as some great vegan Thanksgiving menu ideas of her own!
