Being a Boulder vegan sometimes leaves folks at a loss. Lots of snack items around town and grocery stores that make it easy to cook, sure. But how do Boulder vegans have a tasty Thanksgiving?
Stuck somewhere between Halloween and Christmas, sometimes Thanksgiving gets swept up and passed over a bit when we get caught up in the chaos of consumerism. However, I think that Thanksgiving is a very important holiday to celebrate because it causes us to pause, come together as friends and family, and take stock in all that we have to be grateful for.
Alas, Thanksgiving is not exactly a vegan-friendly holiday when it comes to food traditions. The dishes come packed with dairy and meat, and, well, the main attraction is a giant bird! But this year, you’ll have no excuse, because I have several delicious vegan alternatives that use all the traditional fall favorites and don’t have the word “tofurkey” written anywhere on them.
