Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I couldn’t be more excited. Thanksgiving definitely ties with Christmas as my favorite holiday. There’s something so great about waking up, watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in my PJs, and then spending the day in the kitchen with my mom cooking up a storm. The end of a holiday usually makes me sad, but when Thanksgiving is over, it just means its time to start celebrating Christmas! Did I mention I love the holidays?? 🙂
Last Thanksgiving, my family had its first all vegan Thanksgiving meal, and it was amazing—definitely one of my favorite meals ever. Of course I snapped a picture of my plate for Instagram. #vegan
My mom and I have already started planning for this year’s Thanksgiving menu. In the process of searching Pinterest for the best vegan recipes, I came across some incredible dishes, so I thought I would share them on The Pace! These recipes are for everyone, so die-hard vegans, get ready to ooh and aah at these recipes, and traditional turkey lovers, think about incorporating one of them into your Thanksgiving meal this year! You will find all of Thanksgiving’s staples below (yes, including vegan gravy and vegan pumpkin pie!). Enjoy!
