Raisins- give the perfect sweet/savory flavor contrast to stuffing...and nothing brings back wonderful childhood holiday memories more than the mouthwatering scent of oatmeal raisin cookies sublimely baking in the oven..

Anything and everything Vegan. I teach a new Vegan nutrition course at Oakland Unveristy (Rochester, MI), Continuing Education department. I even have students who work at Whole Foods. We discuss the numerous products Whole Foods carries that makes it 1)easy, 2) healthy, and 3) tasty to eat a Vegan diet. Thank you for all that you do to support Vegans and vegetarians.

Organic granulated brown sugar - for the baby carrots, with butter & a touch of Armagnac; or for the yams, or old fashioned pineapple upside down cake

My staple would be nuts and honey. I am a vegan and a lot of my dessert recipes call for both. What's Thanksgiving without dessert?

Vegan stuffing mix! I did not see any in my Whole Foods store last year that wasn't chicken flavored, so I was excited to see the vegan version on the shelves this year.

I guess the one pantry item I ABSOLUTELY must have on hand for the holidays (and always0 would be raw nuts - of all kinds. I put them in my salads, desserts, main dishes, and they're great sources of protein for just snacking on a few at a time - to help me avoid too much sugary dessert. (Which, I confess, I do love!) Almonds are my favorites... well, except for pecans... and hazlenuts... and walnuts... and peanuts... OK - I confess; I'm nuts about all kinds of nuts! Happy Thanksgiving!

The bread for the stuffing. After all what would Thanksgiving be without the stuffing-empty.

Nutritional yeast! I get huge bag from the bulk section to stay well-stocked. Being vegan, this stuff goes into every dish to make a healthy and deliciously cheesy meal. I put it in mashed potatoes, salad, soup, rice, on top of veggies- paired with braggs liquid aminos instead of salt of course!
