Thanksgiving wasn’t always my favorite holiday. When I was younger, we didn’t even celebrate it because my parents are from India and lifelong vegetarians and the idea of a day devoted to eating turkey and stuffing (and lots of other dishes that have no spice) seemed silly. ⁣ ⁣ But as my sister and I got older, the more important it became to us to incorporate American traditions into our first-generation immigrant family. If I ate green beans and sweet potato casserole on Thanksgiving, then, just maybe I would fit in more with my classmates, maybe kids would make fewer “your house smells like curry” jokes, or maybe my teachers would stop asking/demanding to know why my parents were Hindu instead of Christian. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Despite having no natural interest in Thanksgiving, my parents came to embrace this American tradition. The dinner was never fancy: a lot of it came from boxed mixes, cans, and frozen bags. ⁣ ⁣ And my dad would always put spicy Indian pickles on every dish (yes, even mashed potatoes), and sometimes my mom would make a few special Indian dishes for a hybrid Thanksgiving — these were dishes she didn’t ordinarily have time to make because she had two full-time jobs and was excellent at both. ⁣ ⁣ But my parents continued to play along with this holiday because it was important to my sister and me, because they wanted nothing more than for us to be happy. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Of course, as I got older and started to learn how to cook, I took over most of the Thanksgiving duties. And while making delicious food has always been important to me, even more so was keeping the tradition alive, a tradition that bridged two generations and two cultures and made us feel a bit closer. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So when I say Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, sure, I say that because I love having an excuse to cook and eat a bunch of comfort food. But really, I say that because it reminds me of the sacrifices my parents have made for us. It reminds me of how hard they have worked over the last 35 years to fit in so that my sister and I could feel comfortable and live comfortably. It reminds me of how precious the time that I have with my family is. That’s why I love Thanksgiving.

Warning: your stomach will growl as you scroll through Nisha Vora’s account. She posts a wide range of recipes like soups, brownies, bowls, and more. And her “morning teatime talks” cover an equally diverse selection of topics (sleep, banishing envy, and vegan tips).

Watching Jasmine’s vegan journey from LA to the Pacific Northwest with her partner @consciouschris will give you major plant-based inspiration. While we drool over her plant-based recipes (especially her ridiculously good vegan banana bread), her message of body appreciation and kindness to all beings is what keeps us LOVING her account and everything it stands for. 

4. @JonVenus

Workout tips, plant-based nutritional facts, and…  lots of shirtless muscle pictures. Need we say more?

5. @ChoosingChia

Make no mistake — you’ll see a whole lot more than just chia seeds! From baking recipes to vegan pasta, @ChoosingChia is a go-to account for foodie ideas and recipe tips.

Have you tried my Plantain Quesadillas before? I’ve made these with love of course and these are whole foods driven. I know that you will love these quesadillas because my whole family does! Also, thanks so much for all the love you guys have given me it makes me tear up a bit. 🙈❤️ . . Recipe 3 tortillas of your choice @tastemirancho 2 ripe plantains 1 cup of store bought vegan cheese (made my own) 1 large slicer tomato (diced) 2 cups of spinach ½ a cup of cilantro 1/4 of a cup of purple cabbage 1 whole eggplant (1 cup worth) 2 tbsp of Tamari soy sauce 3 tbsp of coconut oil A pinch of black pepper A pinch of pink salt . . Guacamole 1 large avocado 3 minced garlic cloves (roasted) 2 tbsp of lemon juice 1 tsp of cumin 1 tsp of red pepper flakes A dash of pink salt . . Directions Cut your eggplant (thinly diced), cook and stir with 1 tbsp of oil of choice, soy sauce, and pepper. It takes about 10-15 minutes to cook (add 2 tbsp of water if needed instead of adding more oil). Set aside. Cut your plantains into 3 long pieces (2 plantains make 6 long flat pieces) and fry with 1 tbsp of oil. Make sure your plantains are ripe (must be black spotted on the outside). Set aside Cook your spinach on a pan with 1 tbsp of water just enough to get it wilted. 2 min Make your guacamole by just mashing your avocado and adding all ingredients together. Mix well. Finally cook your tortillas, add your cheese(homemade or store bought), and layer it up with some plantain, eggplant, wilted spinach, and diced tomatoes. Garnish with some purple cabbage, cilantro, and some vegan sour cream. Enjoy.

One look at @Earthlinged’s account and you’ll be zapped with a motivation boost to eat plant-based. His videos are informative, empowering, and just the right amount of respectful feistiness when debating with omnivores.

With about 1 million followers, this account is adored for good reason. Her pictures are insanely beautiful and the recipes taste just as delicious as they look — even if we struggle to create the same photogenic stuffed peppers(🤷).

Sometimes the weight you need to lose isn’t on your body💛🌻 . Sometimes the weight you need to lose is… ☝🏼The weight of other people’s opinions of you and negativity. ☝🏼The weight of the pressure you put on yourself to be ‘perfect’. ☝🏼The weight of the guilt and shame around food choices. ☝🏼The weight of overthinking, questioning + suppressing the signals your body is giving you to eat, rest, take a break… ☝🏼The weight of food rules and restrictions. ☝🏼The weight of forcing yourself to do exercise that you don’t enjoy or don’t have the energy for. ☝🏼The weight of all the criticism and negative self talk you give yourself. ☝🏼The weight of the constant exhaustion from not fuelling yourself properly or giving yourself enough rest. . I can promise you, letting go of the weight of these things WILL make you healthier (and happier too, even if it takes a little honesty, time and inner-work to get there. You are SO not alone)🙏🏼 . And here’s a very smiley, sweaty Nina with a big Choc-Avo Smoothie ~ infinitely happier and healthier than all those years I weighed a lot less than now✌🏼💛

 We love this account for the healthy & delish recipes, but even more for her important message of showing self-compassion (which is something we can all benefit from).

VEGAN 'Turkey' Sandwich! 🥪 Jackfruit 'Turkey' Sandwich… we went there. It's delicious, vegan and packed full of Christmas flavours. You guys will love this. We've mimicked the taste of turkey using jackfruit which is totally plant-based. It's amazing in this sandwich with vegan mayo, cranberry sauce, chestnut spread and veggie sausages which really takes this sandwich to the next level! We've also created a chestnut spread to really add to that delicious Christmas flavour. We simply blended some vacuum packed chestnuts with a little bit of dairy-free butter and a tiny pinch of salt. This spread really takes the turkey sandwich to the next level! You guys have to try this sandwich, it's amazing. Don't take our word for it, try it for yourselves! 💙 PS. Have you heard about our brand new upcoming book ‘BOSH! Healthy Vegan’ yet? (Perfect after this indulgent Christmas period!)
