9 Reasons To Skip The Turkey At Thanksgiving
9. There are tons of super-delish alternative options.
Seriously you guys, this is 2014, and the turkey replacements get better every year. There’s Gardein’s Holiday Roast; Trader Joe’s Turkey-less Stuffed Roast; Field Roast’s Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute, Celebration Roast and Forager’s Roast; Tofurky’s Vegetarian Feast and loads of others. Not to mention, you could opt for a stuffed acorn squash, a veggie lasagna, a Veggieducken or just stuff yourself silly with all the delicious sides. So many choices!

8. Adopting a turkey is way more satisfying than eating one.
Most of the sanctuaries have turkey adoption programs (including Florida’s Kindred Spirits and the famous Farm Sanctuary!). Just think, you could be the benefactor to a lucky bird, insuring they live a healthy, happy existence instead of winding up on someone’s plate. How amazing is that? Good karma for life.
