Hello! I know it's early to be thinking of Thanksgiving and Christmas but I am just curious about Veg*n holidays!! My first 4th of July as a Veg was easy for me to eat this way because there are sooo many yummy veggie salads to be made and grilled veggies are awesome etc. Granted I did have to bring almost 100% of my own food since most everything everyone else brings to BBQ's has something in it that isn't veg*n friendly but I still got to eat great and it worked out well.
However these other holidays have me nervous! Turkey (obviously), Gravy (still obvious) stuffing usually has chicken stock in it, mashed potatoes usually have butter, milk and whatever else in it soooo what do you do at holidays??
I'm thinking my only options are hosting it (which I don't want to do because I don't want to prepare a turkey -or ham for Christmas- and no one in my family eats this way or understands it) Or bring all or my own food again, if I don't want to get stuck eating only canned corn (that is the only thing that the IL's make that would be veg*n appropriate)
SO I am curious what do you do??
