11 Instagram Captions For All of Your Vegetarian Thanksgiving Posts

Thanksgiving isn't always all about the turkey.

If you're a vegetarian, you know that Turkey Day can be a bit tricky (there's an animal in the name after all) but it's still a holiday that revolves around giving thanks for all that you're grateful for, and feasting on some delicious (meat-free!) food.

With that in mind, we've compiled a list of 11 captions you can use for all of your vegetarian Thanksgiving Instagram posts.
