Millions of Americans are set to gather around the family table and give thanks, then promptly dive into the biggest turkey the cook could scavenge from the local grocery store. ‘Tis the season after all, to eat more than you can hold… rest… and repeat until every trace of Thanksgiving Dinner is done.
But an increasing number of people are breaking tradition. A rise in complicated dietary restrictions (no wheat, no pork, no dairy) have made the quintessential Thanksgiving Dinner more of a liability than a celebration. Instead of turkey, some are opting for Prime Rib (hormone/antibiotic free, grass fed)… or ditching the meat altogether.
Meatless meals include all of the regular fixings, including green bean casserole, yams, mashed potatoes and (vegetarian) gravy, and even macaroni and (soy) cheese (hey, don’t knock it until you try it).
