A Vegan Easy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time of year in November where people in various countries like the United States, Canada, Grenada, Saint Lucia, and Liberia celebrate gratitude with their loved ones and give thanks for the good in their lives. Thanksgiving gatherings centre around food for family and guests to enjoy. The ultimate way to observe the holiday is through kindness.

Turn your Thanksgiving into a ThanksLiving celebration! Give thanks, be kind and honour the lives of our animal co-inhabitants by leaving turkeys and other animals off the menu.

To help you celebrate the true essence of the day filled with gratitude and compassion, we’ve created a kind Thanksgiving menu! Depending on how large or small your gathering is, select as many recipes as you like from each menu category to make it a ThanksLiving feast to remember.
