A Thanksgiving Prayer
by [email protected]

Oh, Creator of the Universe...
Whenever we see birds flying in the sky,
we are thankful they are there.

Whenever we see fish swimming in the waters,
we are thankful they are there.

Whenever we see deer or squirrels or rabbits in the woods
we are thankful they are there, and not here on our dinner tables.


The staff at Animal Rights Online wishes you and yours a Happy Vegan Thanksgiving, and after the prayer above, we hope you all get to sit down and relax with a cup of ParkStRanger's ...............


1 pkg. Mori-Nu low fat firm tofu
1 cup vanilla soy, rice or almond milk
1/4 cup vegan sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon rum extract
1/8 tsp. ground turmeric
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

Here is a veganized version of a traditional holidays drink, and a perfect phony: no eggs, no dairy, no booze. I prefer not to use white sugar since it is filtered through animal bone charcoal. Slightly darker sugars like Florida Crystals brand and turbinado sugars are not filtered this way.

With the holidays coming we will all be eating more sweet foods than usual. Here is a great page from written by Joanne Stepaniak about sugar.

If, like me, you find this recipe too phony, forget the rum extract and add several shots of bourbon. Happy Holidays !
