Believe it or not, Thanksgiving isn’t just an American holiday. Canada has its own celebration in October and here in Mexico we celebrate Dia de Acción de Gracias this week.
Thanksgiving has always been more of a religious holiday in the country with the Mexican people giving thanks to God for all of their blessings. The holiday arrives just days after Dia de la Revolucion, which was celebrated this past Saturday in Mexico which commemorates the 10 year revolution waged against Jose de la Cruz Porfirio Diaz Mori in the late 1800’s.
So what kind of food do Mexicans enjoy for our version of Thanksgiving? Yes, some tables have turkey but many celebrate with marinated roast pork and we have a delicious, cruelty-free version in our Cochinita Pibil. Pair that with other traditional favorites such as pumpkin soup and cranberry salsa with cilantro and chiles and you can have yourself a healthy, delicious Thanksgiving dinner that is good for you and the planet.
