You wouldn’t eat
your friends, would you?
As Thanksgiving approaches and we plan our dinners, we need to think about what it is we are eating.
I recently saw a banner that read, “Holidays are Murder on Turkeys,” and it hit me once again how horrible this time of year is for the animals that end up on our tables. We have many alternatives to eating turkeys — from the infamous Tofurkey to the Celebration Roast made by Seattle-based Field Roast.
Take advantage of the opportunity to have a cruelty-free meal rather than one that is the result of slaughter. As children, we trace our hands and draw them into turkeys; we should continue to embrace that love of animals as we get older and show a respect for life by not eating them.
