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.

This post combines my Thanksliving spread, complete from breakfast to the decadent desserts! Continue reading
