Everyone needs to eat more plants.
Given that around 93 percent of people still eat meat, it’s difficult to imagine that everyone will cease doing so anytime soon. A world that eats far less meat, however, is already on the way. Meat consumption has been steadily declining in the U.S.—by 10% per capita since 2007, in fact.
In that year, for example, the U.S. raised and killed 9.5 billion land animals for food. As of 2014, that number plummeted by a whopping 400 million says Paul Shapiro, Vice President, Farm Animal Protection for The Humane Society of the United States. “What that means is that compared to 2007, last year almost half a billion fewer animals were subjected to the torment of factory farming and industrial slaughter plants–and that’s despite the increase in the U.S. population,” Shapiro explains.
Just because someone isn’t 100% vegan, doesn’t mean they’re not making a difference. As recent research demonstrates, 36% of Americans are open to plant-based eating, but most of those people aren’t vegans—or even vegetarians. They are amenable to change, however, and that change is taking the form of farm animals saved. 400 million of them last year, alone. .

You know how I mentioned that there are some things I don’t like about being in a large family?
It’s that when the tahini got to me from across the table, it was practically EMPTY.
What is your lesson from all of this?

We had an amazing roommate/friend/coworker vegan Thanksgiving! There was tofurkey roast, mushroom gravy, roasted garlic potatoes, roasted "bacon" brussel sprouts, greens, buttered rolls, pesto/miyoko mac n cheez, stuffing (and lots of dessert to come!)
Vegan Thanksgiving for the win
-Mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy
-Brussel sprout/butternut squash stuffing -Buttered sweet potato wedges -Rice and mushroom casserole -Apple crisp with Nadamoo
-Many non-vegans complaining or asking if I was satisfied. I was.
Overall not too much backlash, but also not many people trying the vegan options. All it takes is an open mind. One day. Happy Thanksgiving!
Yes I have two drinks. Don't judge. Also Thanksgiving was a smashing success this year. If you haven't had the @gardein Turk'y yet, you MUST! It is the best vegan turk'y!! All my omnivore friends and family ate it instead of the chicken someone brought! I was a little miffed 😂 naw, I was pleased they liked it so much!!
