Thanksgiving for Turkeys
Here is a cute story to gobble about...
Can you imagine turkeys having a Thanksgiving? What would they say?
"Ha! I made it through another year!"
"No, no, no, not on anyone's plate! I won't do that for love!"
What would you have them say?
Come join in the fun.
Come spread the word.
Turkeys just want to have fun.

Turkey! Turkey! Turkey!
This story seemed to burst forth from me, before I became a vegetarian.
It was the start of my transitioning phase.
Turkey Thanksgiving Vegetarian Coloring Story is by CherylsArt at Zazzle.com.
Kids can color in the turkey and add their own berry designs to help the turkey look like a peacock.
Some people raise turkeys as pets.
The Turkey Strut! What might this turkey say?
I saw this turkey walking tall, almost with a sense of purpose. "Cool!" I thought.
He looks so proud and walks with such purpose.
What to feed a child if you're thinking vegetarian or vegan? - No fret. A good rounded diet of fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains will get you going in
After trying several different milk replacements, I have been most impressed with coconut milk by So Delicious. It comes in un-sweetened, vanilla, and chocolate. It has both calcium and magnesium in it, making it a good choice for calcium absorption. And it's non-GMO.
Did you know that good sources for calcium include spinach, oranges, raw broccoli, raisins, and sweet potatoes?
The recipes in this book are geared towards children 8 and up.
This cookbook has very basic recipes in it.
It is said that only the male turkey gobbles to attract a mate.
Proud as a Peacock Turkey - What might this turkey say?
This turkey reminds me of a peacock, with its' feathers spread out.
It's the drawing that I used in the Turkey story above.
Happy Turkeys say, "Eat more vegetables!"
Vegetables provide a variety of vitamins and minerals. Different colored vegetables provide different vitamins. So when you eat vegetables, think, "Eat a variety of color."
Vegetables can be eaten raw, steamed, roasted, cooked in broth, and sauteed in a healthy oil.
I have found that having small packs of vegetable broth around is just the right size for an evening serving of vegetables.
It also comes in handy for making gravy.
I usually use the light tasting olive oil, so more of the vegetable flavors come through, when sauteing.
This oil can be used for both sauteing and baking.
