Vegan Recipes For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a big festival in United States. Thanksgiving is all about good food, family and friends. From couple of centuries, Thanksgiving is celebrated in United States . Traditionally, Americans eat "Roast Turkey" for Thanksgiving...

Times are changing, and thousands of Americans relish delicious and colorful vegan fare (plant-based food) on Thanksgiving. Many vegans will enjoy "Tofurky", made with tofu and seitan( made from wheat) during Thanksgiving dinner . This year you can get amazing vegan food in Whole Foods Market . Mustard glazed cauliflower, lentil-mushroom stuffing , sauerkraut-roasted rainbow carrots,  and chocolate toffee miniature cake are some of the mouth-watering vegan items in Whole Foods Market during Thanksgiving week.

I'm planning to make yummy food for my family . I will make masala dosa( rice and lentil crepe ), coconut chutney , potato palya (spicy potato salad ), channa masala ( garbanzo beans infused with spicy Indian masala), jeera rice (cumin-flavored rice) , and carrot halwa(grated carrot cooked in homemade almond milk and vegan sugar)

Here are some websites, and youtube videos to help Vegans and Non-vegans make delicious vegan Thanksgiving dinner dishes for their loved ones!

Vegan Diet (Plant-based diet) is Affordable and Easy!

Many people assume that thriving on vegan diet is expensive. With some planning, it is very easy to thrive on vegan diet. I regularly buy brown rice, oats, beans, lentils , quinoa, spinach, apples, grapes, bananas, almonds, and walnuts from Costco. Sometimes, I purchase vegan ice cream, chocolates, rice milk , and tofu at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods Market. Buying seasonal fruits and vegetables is another great idea to save money...

PETA Protects Animals

 PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is an amazing organization for protect innocent animals. I think PETA has played a pivotal role in convincing people to thrive on plant-based diet (vegan)...

Thanks to Ingrid Newkirk, and thousands of PETA volunteers across the world for selfless service. Today, we don't see elephants and lions performing in circus, as PETA has worked for years to stop "animal cruelty". Thanks to PETA, millions of students are using interactive computer simulations instead of killing frogs , cats, and pigs during "animal dissection".

Please visit PETA to know more about their amazing work...

Today, I read a very interesting "Questions and Answers" about Global Warming, Solar Energy,  and Electric cars in New York Times.
