Vegan Thanksgiving Feast


To kick off the holiday season, I thought it would be fun to mix recipes with musings around these traditions. So for this week’s post, I give you my Top 10 reasons for having a vegan Thanksgiving.

and now the red enveloppe…
Drumroll please…

10. A dead bird on the table is so old paradigm and unappetizing!

9. Make your home a sanctuary (and you won’t have to dispose any dead body!)

8. It is better for your health and kinder to the planet (all the flavors but low fat, low cholesterol and high fiber)

7. Teach compassion for all creatures to our children, because chances are, they are equally loved and valued by the One who made them.

6. Meat-free is just good karma!

5. For the respect of all mothers, because they deserve it!

4. You may be thanksfull but the turkey is not! 

3. No animal will be harmed in the making of your meal! (40 million turkeys are killed every year around this time)

2. By sparing the life of an innocent being, our life may be spared too.

1. Make it a truly holy day!

What are your reasons for having a vegan Thanksgiving this year?
Do tell!


As a vegan chef, cooking instructor and food consultant, I am blessed to share my passion for international flavors, a compassionate world, optimal health and healing. You can't have one without the others because they are all interconnected. My culinary journey started in the South of France where I was born, then took me through Europe, onto America, then Asia and South America. I grew up eating delicious rich food my grandmother made (think creamy white and wine sauces) and fresh Mediterranean dishes my mother prepared. My family was by no mean vegetarian or vegan but we weren’t big meat eaters either. This being said, I must confess that I have had my fair share of strange things being served as food as I grew up! But I soon came to realize that it was the sauces, the marinade that tasted so good and that they could have just as well been poured over bread or tofu and it would have been just as good. You know how certain songs bring back a memory of where you were and who you were with when you heard them? Well, I seem to have a memory of food attached to pretty much every place and profound moment I have experienced in my life. It was the way love was shared and cherished all through my life so I am continuing the tradition! But the love is even more healing when there is no pain and sufferings attached to it. Be vegan, it is good for your health and the only sustainable diet for the planet.
