It is that time of year again, at least in the States where people celebrate the holiday known as Thanksgiving. This year I compiled some of my favorite vegan Thanksgiving recipes. My partner and I have decided to not celebrate at all. No dinner or anything, but I definitely will make a harvest dinner on the weekend. The actual day of the holiday, I have decided to volunteer my time to help feed those in need. I encourage all those who do celebrate to consider volunteering, giving money to progressive Native American causes, or educating yourself about the history of this holiday. If you do have a dinner, as always I recommend eating vegan.
