Tofurkey Day

There are lots of options for a Thanksgiving feast. Everyone eating at my house will have Pecan-crusted Seitan, Jill may have a tofurkey, Sarah’s household has made the decision not to have a turkey this year. Around 46 million turkeys are eaten on Thanksgiving alone.  Even if you are a meat eater I think you can agree that that’s a lot of dead bird. 

Think about adding a kind gesture to your Thanksgiving traditions and check out the adopt-a-turkey project —http://www.adoptaturkey.org/  

Here you can adopt or sponser a turkey and learn more about factory farming, free range and organic farming, even the history of Thanksgiving.

    I have tried tofurkey and for some reason was not crazy about it. I also have had tried other things such as a “roast” and it was so bad that my dog wouldnt eat it. However, there are a lot of products in my opinion that taste like the meat they are supposed to. I agree though that 46 million is pretty high.People should try new things. I myself would skip the “turkey” and just go for the fixins.

    Am I right in thinking NCMLS has been without a resident turkey for over a year? Any plans to adopt one? How about a Kickstarter project?

      You are correct, Ozzie has been gone for over a year. We haven’t yet decided what will live in that area, currently Duck spends the night in that exhibit. I will check out the project you mentioned.
