I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I certainly did, although I definitely ate too much. Somehow before tucking in I forgot about the limited space available in my abdomen (what with the 5-6 lb. human residing in there), and paid the price with a pretty uncomfortable evening thereafter, but it was so worth it.
One of the things I of course overstuffed myself with was my favorite staple–the Tofurky roast!–that I bring along to Thanksgiving every year.
I know the word “Tofurky” has become kind of infamous and is maybe a bit of a joke to non-vegans. It is kind of a silly name, I guess, and it’s kind of misleading because Tofurky isn’t actually a tofu turkey (it’s actually made of a blend of tofu, gluten, and canola oil). But I really, really love it. Especially with all the caramelized roasted veggies around it–ahh, so good!
It’s obviously not exactly a health food, but it is absolutely delicious and I look forward to enjoying it on this special occasion each year. For me, Thanksgiving isn’t the same without it anymore. And, because of the availability of options like this, a meatless Thanksgiving is not only possible, but is truly enjoyable. That’s definitely something to be thankful for!
And now I’m off to make myself a Thanksgiving sandwich with leftover Tofurky for lunch 🙂
P.S. – After reading over the post and realizing that it sounds a bit like an ad or review (haha!), I just thought I’d clarify that I’m not being paid to advertise Tofurky or anything. I just really like it and wrote the post while I was getting psyched up for my lunch.
