Tofurky does a nice job with it's holiday roast and the ingredients are pretty decent with the exception of canola oil. Field Roast is actually my favourite tasting "celebration roast" and while it also has oil in it I find the flavour a little better than the rather neutral flavour of the Tofurky. Either way both products satisfy my desire for a place on the holiday plate and I appreciate them. Food is a social gathering point we build family traditions over. There was a time when I was proud I'd learned to carve a turkey properly and we'd order well ahead at a local farm for our organic raised $90 bird for the holiday. There's no doubt in my mind that a Tofurky loaf 3 times a year is a healthier more sustainable alternative to meat for our family. To be completely honest though, my favourite part of the meal was always the stuffing and apple pie for dessert. Those things carry on as plant eaters pretty much unchanged.
If you're Canadian and had Thanksgiving last weekend or American and are preparing for yours next month I wish you a fantastic holiday no matter your food traditions. Just remember, no matter how ingrained it is that you should include meat as part of it, you can change if you wish and still enjoy the festivities.
