This Thanksgiving, enjoy some delicious and nutritious vegan recipes that do not harm or kill animals. Eating vegan is in alignment with values of love, compassion and unity. Not only does it spare animals suffering, but it is also better for our health and the earth.
This Thanksgiving and always, I am so grateful for my parents who raised me vegetarian. I never ate the animals, and we never had any in our house that were not alive (pets). I am so grateful to the yogis that taught them values of compassion and nonviolence (ahimsa) towards animals.
Every day, and each thanksgiving, I hope to spare animals (and the earth) from suffering, by educating others on the benefits of eating a plant-based vegan diet, in harmony with all living beings, our bodies and the earth.
As yoga master Dharma Mittra says "we must extend our compassion beyond our pets."
All beings want to live. Turkeys too.
I am sending this on my SunLight Yogatips Eletter also prior to the holiday, so that you can get ideas how to make healthy and delicious vegan holiday meals. Enjoy!
