19th Annual Healthy Harvest Turkey-free Thanksgiving Potluck and Silent Auction

The food will be bountiful and delicious and, of course, cruelty-free when you join us for the 19th Annual Healthy Harvest Turkey-free Thanksgiving Potluck and Silent Auction. This highly popular event, co-sponsored by EarthSave Twin Cities and ARC, will be on Sunday, November 18, from 5-7:30pm at Lake Harriet United Methodist Church, 4901 Chowen Ave S in Minneapolis. You don't need to be vegan or vegetarian to attend!

Please bring a vegan main dish or side dish or dessert to share with others (vegan = no meat, dairy, eggs, gelatin, honey, or refined sugar).  Also bring a serving utensil, a copy of the recipe to set by your dish, your place setting (plate, cup, utensils), and of course your appetite!

    unfortunately, I just finished baking two pumpkin pies for tomorrow... then realized that since they contain refined sugar they can't be included in the feast :( So sorry about that! I still don't know what I'll make instead. Maybe stuffing.

      Here's a link to the bone char free sugars produced by US companies. Just scroll down to the table at the end of the article: http://www.vrg.org/jo...­

      Hi Angela- Thanks for the list! That should come in handy.

    Does refined sugar contain animal products?

    November 17, 2012

    • Donna

      Not really, but many sugars are bleached with animal bone char. Many fair trade certified sugars are processed in a way suitable for vegans, just check the package. Sucanat is dehydrated sugar cane juice and is a nice substitute for most refined sugar.

    I bought some vegan stuffing mix from whole foods I can bring. It's impossible for me to eat it all, so I'd rather share the bounty!
