The Thanksgiving Gameplan
For a few years in a row, I was happy to host a Gentle Thanksgiving party at my house. While everyone else was devouring turkey, my animal-friendly friends and I savored cornmeal crusted tofu cutlets with mushroom gravy, garlic mashed potatoes, acorn squash with pecan praline, winter vegetable bisque... and a delectable array of seasonal treats.
If you're inspired to host one of your own (or just want to come up with one darn good recipe to help you survive the day), I hope this post will help. Below are a few websites that offer creative
ideas for the holidays. Why not let them be your inspiration for starting new compassionate holiday traditions of your own?
A Feast by Robin Robertson - I always return to her book, Vegan Planet, for ideas. It never ceases to inspire me, as this Thanksgiving Menu surely will for you.

information, environmental issues and tons of pretty pictures. Great ideas for the
A Bountiful Vegan Thanksgiving - Lovely website by Nava Atlas with a special
Thanksgiving Themed menu that you can browse for ideas or order as an e-book.
Gentle Thanksgiving - An entire website devoted to just that. Pretty cool!
