Thanksgiving is a magical time of year. Just family, friends and food. In my family, it’s a day to hang and talk and eat. Nowhere else to be and no one to impress. The perfect time for flannel and cut offs. Not the most original outfit but one of the most comfortable.
Everyone loves a plaid flannel and I know they make them for girls, boys, kids, etc. But do yourself a favour and get a mans, but not just any mans. Definitely go vintage. If you live in Canada and your dad is into any of our cliched past-times (think hunting or fishing) then he probably has a few flannel shirts. STEAL THEM! I would have stolen a few of my own father’s had my mother not gotten to them first. But someone else’s father’s will do, this one was purchased at Public Butter in Toronto.
Well that’s the outfit, now onto the food: this is my first official vegan Thanksgiving. I have been following a vegan diet for just over six months and it’s one of the things I am most thankful for this holiday. I feel more energetic and healthy and it’s one step closer to a cruelty free lifestyle. Instead of turkey, vegan rice and quiona loafs from Whole Foods were the main course. Paired with vegetables, mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and of course stuffing (my favourite part). Everything tasted so good I didn’t even miss the turkey and I definitely didn’t miss sleepy turkey brain after dinner.
