A Vegan Feast Minus the Meat?
For most people, Thanksgiving is synonymous with turkey, and other traditional dishes. We found a few celebrities that put a vegan twist on the holiday. Is Thanksgiving really Thanksgiving without the gobbling guest of honor? Here’s some of Hollywood’s biggest names that are going turkey-free this Thanksgiving:
The hilarious and gorgeous Sarah Silverman has been a vegetarian since the age of 10. In 2010 Sarah said that marriage was similar to eating meat, in that both are “gross”. With views like that you can bet that Sarah won’t have a bird in the oven this Thanksgiving.
Samuel L. Jackson
In 2014 Samuel L. Jackson lost an astounding 40 lbs! He attributed this amazing feat to a strict vegan diet that he hopes will help him, “live forever.” Here’s one actor that doesn’t need to worry about putting on a few extra pounds this Thanksgiving.
Jessica Chastain won’t be eating turkey this Thanksgiving either. Incredibly, she managed to convinced her mother to adopt her vegan lifestyle. Due to a lack of decent vegan restaurants in her area, she purchased her mom a vegan food truck to start a business. The truck is called Seed On The Go, and we heard that its amazing! If you’re in Santa Rosa, CA keep an out for this one.
Natalie Portman has been a vegetarian ever since she was 8. She eventually became a vegan after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s book, “Eating Animals.” Natalie went as far as to have an all-vegan wedding in 2012. You can bet that the Oscar winner is going to pass on the turkey this Thanksgiving.
Alicia Silverstone aka “The Queen of Vegan Thansgiving”, is yet another celebrity that is having a turkey-free holiday. She has an amazing selection of vegan dishes that you can see here.
