Happy Compassionate Vegan Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is about being thankful and celebrating peace and non-violence. Vegans recognize the obvious, cruel contradiction that is eating a tortured animal in a celebratory feast. Thanksgiving is one of the most heartbreaking holidays if you are aware of the cognitive dissonance of the majority of society. “Turkey Day” as it is often called, is

Every year, we give out our turkey leaflets during the week leading up to Thankgiving.  They really started to take off when we added a bunch of yummy vegan recipes to them!   A heartfelt thanks goes out to volunteers Alissa, Merideth, Marv and Risha for helping us spread the word about the truth behind turkey production, as

Give turkeys something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away, which makes this a good time to talk about turkeys. The first time I met a turkey in real life was when I was in high school, many years ago, and volunteering at some harvest festival as a lead up to Thanksgiving.  We were picking pumpkins and

This past week is full of Thanksgiving-related posts and news, since Thursday was American Thanksgiving. Probably the most exciting Thanksgiving development was Martha Stewart’s Vegetarian Thanksgiving. With Martha Stewart and Ellen both championing the end of factory farming and a move towards vegetarianism and veganism, there might just be hope for the future. Vegan Soapbox:

Vegan MoFo#8: The unturkey evaluation

The unturkey was cooked and eaten.  Here are some photos and the verdict. The roast looked as AMAZING as I remembered (back when you were able to buy unturkey in a box).  However, I would steer you away from making the “wheat meat” or seitan with vital wheat gluten.  It takes a lot more effort

Vegan MoFo #7: Unturkey

It’s Thanksgiving today, a day of mourning for the millions of turkeys mutilated and murdered all over Canada to uphold a tradition.  Turkeys are one of the friendliest creatures I’ve encountered.  See my article about turkeys here. My post today will be about making a cruelty free roast.  In the old days, there were TWO
