Thanksliving Menu (V, GF)

20 Nov

Yes, Thanksliving – my family’s Holiday table spread is cruelty-free, gluten-free, and absolutely delicious.  Friends tell me how difficult it can be not only being vegan, but gluten-free during the holidays and it shouldn’t be!  That’s what motivates my food: I want everyone to be able to enjoy eating, and not just during the Holidays!  I’m thankful for my family.  I take for granted my family is vegan (after I made the switch), let alone my parents raised me in a vegetarian household (talk about a different upbringing that I’m most thankful for!).  I truly believe smart eating habits start at birth, and for that I want to say “Thank you” to the best supportive parents a gal could ever ask for.  Since I’ve had to remove gluten from my diet they’ve taken the journey with me, tasting my trials & errors and lifting me up when I’ve felt down.

Since Joey & I will not be spending this Holiday together, we celebrated Thanksliving #1 this past Saturday and hiked Plateau Mountain the following day (photo above!).  We packed leftovers of my Tofu Loaf & Gratifying Gravy for lunch and if possible, was even more delicious when looking out at the vista.
