Turkey Love & Raw Thanksgiving Links
A little late, but noteworthy Thanksgiving links none the less for you and your cooked-food-eating relatives, (totally kidding ;-)
Tim's Mom's Raw Egg Nog (this looks great!)
"One thing I really want, though, is eggnog. I found a recipe on my favorite raw foods message board, and I altered it (it called for almond milk, but that sounded like too much work) so I used sunflower seeds and water instead. And I didn't have any cardamon, so I left it out. What does cardamon taste like, anyway? To me, it's the nutmeg that makes it eggnog. It was brown from the sunflower seeds and vanilla--it looked more like creamy hot chocolate. But it tasted very good!"
Carrot Stuffing Recipie
"This can be eaten alone, added to a salad, placed on lettuce leaves, stuffed in a pepper, rolled in nori, etc. You can also make this into patty shapes and dehydrate into another type of veggie patty. If you dehydrate this long enough, it will turn into raw “croutons”, or crackers."
Raw Cranberry Sauce
The Amazing Turkey
"Turkeys have been genetically modified to gain weight rapidly because fatter turkeys mean fatter wallets for farmers. But in nature, the turkey’s athletic prowess is truly impressive. Wild turkeys can fly at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour and run at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour. The natural lifespan of the turkey is between 10 and 12 years, but on factory farms they are slaughtered when they’re just 5 months old."
Adopt A Turkey
"In 1986, Farm Sanctuary began its annual Adopt-A-Turkey Project. This unique effort has saved thousands of turkeys from the slaughterhouse, and encouraged millions of people to be kind to animals. This Thanksgiving, hundreds of families are feeding turkeys, instead of eating them, by adopting feathered friends who live at Farm Sanctuary."
