Bangin Bird Food Thanksgiving Once Again

Hey Lovelies!

I hope the last post about amazing salad combos has made your life.  It definitely makes mine.  So Thanksgiving is rolling around in the next 3 days and I am currently scouting the internet for awesome recipes.  I hit on a variety of sites and their many options and I just thought I would share what I collected.  This post is all an attempt to help you flip through recipes faster than to be Googling for hours in frustration and showcase some websites that I did not last year.  If you forgot about my post from last year, let me kindly familiarize you with it again.


You definitely have some staples in that pile so check 'em out.  As I told you last year..........................I gotchu!  I'll be showcasing five fab options here.  I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays!  :)

One:  Naked Food Magazine

This online magazine actually came out during the summer and they have been raving about the awesome Thanksgiving options that they offer along with other amazing plant-based recipes.  Here is what appears to be on the Thanksgiving list:

  • Roasted Pumpkin Wedges
  • Naked Spiced Cacao
  • Holiday Stuffing
  • Holiday Nog
  • Naked Carrot Cake
  • Chocolate Fate Pralines
  • Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes
  • Mushroom Holiday Gravy
  • The Better Shepherd's Pie
  • Holiday Cauliflower Rice
All of those sound ridiculously delicious.  The e-book costs about $24 for over 100 recipes.  

I am not sure why I didn't include the site last year but this is one of the most popular vegan websites out there.  Angela's food always looks beyond amazing.  Check out what she has lined up this year.  I will definitely be making the Lentil Loaf this year.
