If you’re vegan or vegetarian, the holidays can be a challenging time. From the probing questions at the dinner table to the snarky quips about why you won’t eat the turkey, we find ourselves facing a number of uncomfortable situations. We want to enjoy the holiday with our friends and family, but how can we relax when the centerpiece on the table is the bodily remains of a once living, vibrant animal? What do we say? How do we respond? And, perhaps most importantly, what can we eat?
These questions are addressed on this month’s episode of Exploring Veg. For this discussion, CAA Executive Director Unny Nambudiripad is joined by CAA Outreach Coordinator Grace Van Susteren and two CAA volunteers and students at the University of Minnesota, Priyanka Ketkar and Tyler Tracy.
