Okay, many of us have been writing about ways to make your Thanksgiving dishes cruelty-free this year. How to substitute the turkey with a delicious vegan main course alternative, how to make simple substitutions to classic sides, how to reconsider our decision to kill over 40 million turkeys for a holiday of thanks, etc.
It can be a lot to take in. You deserve a drink!
But hold it!
There’s just one more thing I want to mention about that drink in your hand. Did you know that even wine can be non-vegan?? And did you know that many beers contain GMO ingredients? Well it’s true. Bummer, I know.
So to complete your wonderful, humane, conscientious Thanksgiving feast, head to the liquor store armed with these helpful resources for purchasing healthier alcoholic beverage. (Is that an oxymoron??)
Number 1: For non-GMO beers and wines go to althealthworks.com for a list of recommendations.
Number 2: For vegan wines, use the great app barnivore. Just enter the wine you’re considering buying and find out if it contains dairy, honey, or is filtered using animal products.
That’s all ladies and gentlemen!! Let the celebrations begin!
Have fantastic Thanksgiving. Among so many other things, I am grateful for YOU and for your company here on the blogosphere.
Peace, Blessings, and Safe Drinking.
