Is anyone else out there freaking out about the upcoming holiday? I am newly married and on Thanksgiving we go to my parents house and then my husband's grandparents house so we are not hosting and in addition we will be spening the 4 day holiday sleeping at family members homes (we live 2 hours away from them). This means I don't really have much control about the food that is being prepared. I'm bringing a vegan dish to pass, but other than that I'm not sure what to eat. I've only been doing this 2 weeks now and my husband's family is extremely critical so there is no way I'm at a point where I'm prepared to tell them I'm no longer eating meat and dairy. Does anyone else have a plan on how to handle this holiday as a new vegan. I'm at the point where the thought of eating any meat makes me physically ill after all the horrible things I have been reading lately. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
i am! we are going to my parents house for 4 days in a small louisiana town with no whole foods around or anything for me to grab some staples. i have a big italian family and my dad is a chef quality cook who is going to be so offended im not eating his food. i bought that tofurkey thanksgiving feast to bring home to cook but im worried itll taste like cardboard and my family will be even more snug. dont know what to eat for 4 days so it doesnt look like i live off salads only
My husband's family lives out of town so we frequently have overnight stays. I usually take a fews can of Amy's Organic Vegan soups and Lara bars with me. It is not the most variety but it will hold you over. Make sure you pick soups with a protein source in them as well.
