is a time for family, gratitude, and, of course, food! This Thanksgiving, Paul McCartney is urging you to say "no, thanks" to turkey and "yes" to a
delicious, cruelty-free holiday meal. Paul is no stranger to the world of meat-free
meals—his powerful narration of PETA's "Glass Walls" video illustrates his notion that "if slaughterhouses had glass walls,
everyone would be vegetarian." Like chickens,
the 300 million turkeys raised and killed for their flesh every year in the United
States have no federal legal protection. More than 45 million
turkeys are killed each year at Thanksgiving alone, and more than 22 million
die at Christmas. Paul
teamed up with PETA once again to help keep cruelty off the holiday menu:

festivities? Check out these delicious, cruelty-free recipes that Paul will be
cooking and wow your family and friends with these meat-free dishes.
