Thanksgiving is an epicurean's fantasy. The only problem is that it excludes those who don't eat animal, dairy or cooked foods. Fortunately, a number of health-conscious restaurants have started offering alternative dinners so that everyone can celebrate. And though many restaurants will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, complete pre-cooked feasts are available for pick-up the day before and include everything from a seitan turkey roast to coconut turkey jerky.
Whether you're vegan or just plain curious, consider the alternative this year. No matter what, it's sure to be memorable.
